Well... it sounds that you have professional involvement; however, like the often-accurate intuition of a naive child, it would seem to me that Israel desiring a few well built settlements close to the green line is not completely out of the pre-1967 realm. Likewise, if there was certainty that the Arab world would not threaten, a buffer along the Jordanian border would not be required and the Palestinians could have their much-sought "contiguous" swath of desert. Look, bottom line is that the Jews have one sliver of land and the Arabs have the region and inhabit it with corrupt oligarchies (because their economies are based on oil only, not skilled labor which might facilitate a middle class); so yes, Israel is not benign, but it is relatively benign given it's neighbors.
