Stop complaining about losing land that wasn't ours, and stop whining that it will bring more terror. Terror was here and will be afterwards, since the Palestinians can't get their act together to put down their weapons and truly negotiate as one body. If only we can decide what constitutes a safe & secure border for now, then so be it. Staying in the West Bank will only bring more heartache, enduring hatred, and greatly weakens the democratic nature of the state. And that's the key to long term survival. The withdrawl from Lebanon was in large part a big success and from Gaza the same. Less settlements means less soldiers to guard them, more money for the projects in Israel, and less of a pretext for future terror/wars. So stop your (selfish and moronic Greater Land of Israel) whining about land that wasn't even ours - we need to create a border near enough to the '67 lines, and wait for a stable Palestinian society to grow up. We'll be a lot safer and a lot more secure.
