    "[in spite of being occupied, the] Germans accepted peace after their defeat." (Frank) This is a completly valueless point, for you have missed the whole point: Even after their defeat, the Germans had still a state [even two], whose territory was disputed by no one, free of foreign settlers imposed by foreign armies, claiming that all the land was theirs, that they were there for ever, and that the Germans were nothing but squatters and invaders. Moreover, it was obvious to everyone, that the occupation by the Allied forces of defeated Germany was only temporary and that after it would end, Germany would go back being an independent country. All these are the reasons "the Germans accepted peace after their defeat." "Israel will be at peace with Arabs once the jihad is defeated." (Frank) Wrong again. Only an Arab leader can defeat Jihad, provided of course he has a state to rule over, free of foreign settlers imposed and protected by a foreign army. Otherwise, he would only be an Arab Quisling. This is what Ben Gurion would have been, had he dared to sink the Altalena in the presence of the British occupation forces. Go and learn about Black September, Jordan, 1970.
