I remember the belief after the Six Day War that this was what would give Israel peace. Striking first, Israel had smitten it's enemies and prevailed. Jordan foolishly entered the war and lost the better part of it's nation. Egypt had been rolled back to the canal and Syria would no longer be able to bombard Galilee from the Golan as if it were fish in a barrel. Up until 1967 all Israel wanted was peace. It wanted the right to live quietly and prosperously within the cease fire line of 1948. But after the 'easy" (it was not as easy as it later seemed) victory of the Six Day War things changed. Some Israelis, and American immigrants who would never have moved to the precarious Israel of 1966, set forth to build a 'greater Israel" composed of "Judea and Samaria" to say nothing of Gaza and Sinai. Now, the Israel I knew when young, which wanted nothing more than normal peaceful relations with all it's Arab neighbors, has no idea what it wants. Even though now that is what is offered.
