    You cannot annex the Palestinians of the West Bank without doing the same for those living in Gaza and the Palestinian refugees living in the neighboring countries as well. Whether you like it or not, the Palestinians are no longer just a section of what used to be the Arab nation. Today, there is no such thing as a single Arab nation anymore. The Arab nation has become a ''nation of nations'' and the Palestinians have become a distinct nation, with their own identity. Thus, if you want to annex the West Bank and turn Israel into a ''binational state'', this hypothetical binational state, must belong to both nations forming it, that is to say, the Jewish one and the Palestinian one. It means that you cannot absorb the West Bank. You will have to absorb the entire Palestinian people (Gaza and the refugees as well). There is no need to say that under these circumstances, the Jews will lose their majority and that would mean the end of Zionism.
