Israel has Lebanon and Syria to the north, Jordan to the East and Egypt to the South. It seems able to live with that relationship. Indeed until it attacked Egypt it lived within the 1967 borders. Israel now acts as though stopping its occupation of the West bank will be the equivelent of a second holocaust. Come on. The whole issue is keeping the land for the settlers. Any withdrawal will mean civil war. In 1993 there were 63,000 settlers, now 500,000. Israel made its own bed.
