No, MichaelUK, the problem is that history shows again and again that the Arabs and the "Int'l forces" can't be trusted to honor their commitments. Israel's security can not depend on the goodwill of people who don't have any - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Example: UN never kept its 1947 commitment to insure free worship in Jerusalem. Example: UN never stopped Arab attacks on Israel after the 1950 Armistice in imposed. Example: US and failed o hopnor its commitment to keep Tiran straits open - causing the 1967 war. UN forces failed to prevent re-armingof Hezbollah under UNSC 1701. Example: world failed to prevent rocket smuggling across demilitarized Sinai into Gaza. Etc., etc. Demilitarization and guarantees mean NOTHING. KOSOVO??? Under failed "UN guarantees", the entire native Serbian population of Kosovo was ethnically cleansed from their homes by illegal immigrants from Albania. No Arabs are going "back" to Israel, not 100,000, not ONE. That's what the PA state is for. And what is your "plan" to remove rejectionist Hamas and their rockets from Gaza, a paper promise?? If Israel is going to withdraw from the Jordan Valley, to prevent a repeat of the Gaza rocket arsenal terrorism, Israel needs a multi-trillion dollar air defense system capable of shooting down in flight 100.0% of all rocket and mortar fire from the PA state, nothing gets through. Who will pay for that, because Israel isn't going anywhere for worthless paper promises like they've hadto date. That's reality. For withdrawing, Israel is entitled to the same peace with the Arabs that Norway has with Sweden. Or no deal.
