There is no doubt that some international involvement, of the type displayed in Annapolis, is useful and perhaps necessary. But the idea that international involvement in necessary to "counteract the military advantage of Israel" is not very practical. Today Israel is ready for a true compromise. The Palestinians on the other hand have stated in their official position that they will "never" give up the so called "right of return" the idea that the descendants of refugees from Israel can only be resettled in Israel or else their life will not be complete and they would rather remain unproductive refugees forever. Obviously Israel's military strength does not translate to getting favorable solutions. In the end it is not force that is needed to get Israel to make peace. It is willingness to create a solution which will not make the Jews of Israel a (possibly persecuted) minority in their own land and will allow Israel security. It should also create a state for the Palestinians.
