    Howdy Meir; However, if the IDF remains in the West Bank, the Israeli settlers on the "Palestinian" side of the fence are relocated to the "Israeli" side of it (thus removing them from the field of battle so to speak), and the security barrier is completed, then the IDF will be in a much better position militarily. The fence has already stopped most Palestinian terrorist attacks already and its completion in conjuction with closing the frontier to all Palestinian travel across it should reduce Palestinian ground terrorist attacks to near zero. That only leaves rockets and mortars which can be fired over the fence. There are various ways to counter that threat, but they all involve massive civilian casualties as well. In any case, the military situation would be no worse than it is today and hopefully a viable anti-rocket system can be developed in the near future (I know that people are working on it). If the Palestinian militant/terrorist groups can't attack Israel, then what?
