Israel was established by a UN resolution in 1947. To maintain its importance to the Unites States Israel should maintain its borders as defined in 1947 regardless of historical claims made by some Israelis. The modern norm of nations is not to recognize the occupation and confiscation and development of land taken in war. I can forsee a time when Israel may not be a benefit to the United States in ints international dealings.
