Israel would eventually give the Palestinians all of Gaza and all of West Bank (minus Jerusalem, which I admit they intend to keep), in exchange for a rock solid security guarantee. Israel has said it reserves the settlements as part of a final agreement. Unfortauntely, we all know that Israel will never have complete security. If Israel pulled out from all the occupied territories, do you think the Palestinian attacks would cease completely? Of course not. And this proves that the onus for peace lies with the Palestinians. Ultimately, and very unfortauntely, Israel may have to tolerate the occasional bomb in order for peace to be possible. And we know it is possible, because for the better part of the 1990s there was peace. I would not have gambled on "full MidEast peace" as Obama has. I would have focused more on getting Saudi Arabia to recognize Israel, which I do believe is possible. I realize many on this board will disagree, but it is possible. S.A. is a very close US ally.
