With Israeli leaders running from war crime charges and Israel's worldwide popularity at its all time low, Israel would find itself in some very tough times if it were to try to deny the Palestinian statehood under the framework of existing UN resolutions and long standing international laws. The Internet also prevents Israel from effectively feeding its pro-Israel 'woe is me' propaganda to western news media outlets, because while it may have worked in the past, today the traditional news agencies are competing for their very lives and cannot risk being exposed as mere propaganda tools while internet news agencies publish the truth. Should Israel refuse to end its occupation and deny the right of the Palestinian people to exist, Israel would paint itself as the bad guys and expose what most educated people already know, that Israel's diabolical plan all along has been to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians and steal their land.
