No it was not a good move. And it is even less of a good move to keep 1.5 million people in an open air prison. Yes Israel has legitimate national security concerns but they will not be addressed unless Israel agrees some sort of settlement with the otherwise. Even that may not be a total solution but it will take the sting out of the situation and there will be less reason for Israel to be seen as the pariah state. Right now Israel is putting all eggs in one basket with USA support. But give another 50-75 years USA may not be in a position to protect Israel. Israel will have to come to terms with the nations around and see eye to eye with them. That means they have to compromise. Everyone will have to accept Israel’s right to existence.
