    Irrespective of your convoluted and quixotic thought process, I must ask you this: Do you have even a semblance of pride in your own peoples perseverance and patently effective methods of reigning in the ubiquitous masses? Not to sound condescending, but honestly, these territories are spoils of war that so happen to have a very viable foundation in Jewish heritage. As a corollary, I am not opposed to bequeathing this property if done so in a manner that is utile for the Jewish state. But what are we supposed to do? Say "oh forget it, lets just hand over our land for fun in hopes that sworn historical enemies will all of a sudden do a complete 180 degree turn"? You CANNOT honestly believe that this is possible, do you?
