    and I'll walk you through it: 1. The IDF already operates freely in the West Bank. That's why there have been almost no suicide bombers for almost two years (that and the fence, of course). 2. The IDF has chosen not to have a permanent presence in West Bank towns so as not to give what I call 'terrorists' and you call the 'resistance' more targets, but to carry out daily (in fact mostly nightly) raids on the basis of the intelligence they gather. This strategy seems to be working reasonably well, so why on earth would Israel even consider a 'massive invasion' of the West Bank? Of course, to a brainwashed Islamist in Jakarta logic is irrelevant - it's much simpler to mouth the slogans about evil Jooos just craving to kill poor Palis, right?
