    The analysis is perfect. Israel will doubtlessly win the next battle and implement the annexations. The establishment of a viable Palestian state will be removed from the agenda. I fail to see, though, how Israel can win the war. The objective of all wars is to achieve a peace agreement with the results desired by the victorious party. This is not in sight. Israel will get more land but has to shoulder the burden of keeping the rebellious enclaves under control. A relocation of the population of the colonies to a future Palestinian Republic of Jordan is not feasible; nobody can forcibly transfer 2.5 million people. Even if it could be done it would just shift the hostilities geographically eastwards without solving them. So, in any event, instead of living in a prosperous condition of peace Israel will have to continue the present perpetual war with the insurgents in the colonies and against terror. This can't be the ultimate goal of Israel's policy. If not, what is it then?
