Here's reality, like it or not: If the Obama administration does not promptly rectify the arms imbalance to Israel's satisfaction, especially in the matter of US treaty violations, it will find Israel no longer interested in talking "risks for peace" that come with leaving Arab territory. As simple as that. UNSC 242 calls for withdrawal to "secure and recognized borders". They can't be secure if US security obligations are unreliable. Israeli factions opposing territorial concession argued decades ago that Israel could not depend on US promises and guarantees to protect itself, and if they are proven correct, the so-called "peace process" is at an end, and the land under Israel's control with stay that way. No incentive to do otherwise. US stupidly sparked the 1967 war by refusing to honor its promise to keep Tiran Straits open in exchange for a 1956 Israeli Sinai withdrawal. If it is seen double-crossing Israel again, Israel has no option but using nuclear retaliation for its defense.
