    There is no legal state of Israel beyond its 1949 armistice agreements with Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. All those Jewish population centers in the West Bank that Israelis are adamant about keeping are in violation of countless UN resolutions, violate the spirit of the Camp David Accords, and are responsible for turning Israel into a colonial power. These settlements, in short, may doom the peace process in the Middle East, leaving Israel with no choice but to remain a bunker state perpetually on guard for another united Arab, let alone Iranian, attack. So if Israel wants to remain a colonial master, overseeing the reclamation of Greater Israel at the expense of Palestinians (as the Likud clearly does), then the people of Israel will always fear the day the Arabs deliver a decisive blow. And when that day comes, Israel's bombastic and rapacious politicians will ask themselves forlornly, why didn't I just trade land for peace?
