    International isolation, boycotts, further increase in anti-Israel/anti-Jewish sentiments around the globe, and all of that for a few hills and rocks on the West Bank....no sane people in this world would choose so much trouble for (almost) nothing! Israel could easily become the darling of the ME (if not the whole world!), if the Israeli people, and her political and military leaders would finally find the strength to get away from old myths and legends and offer their hands for a just compro- mise with the Arab/Palestinian neighbours. Because in the end, there are only 2 options: Either you will lose most parts of the West Bank with a lot of pain, or with little to none pain, but that you will lose it one day, is as certain as the Amen in the church.....today it's Argentine and Brasil, in a few months it will be most European and Asian countries, and in a couple of years, it might even ben the United States of America. Definitely not worth it, please give it up.....
