Israeli leaders know full well, they have the deterrence capability to defend Israel, whether they hold onto the occupation or not. Any buffoon knows if Israel withdraws from territory and signs a peace deal with the Palestinians, her security situation would be greatly enhanced. Would this stop ALL attacks on Israel from Day 1 after a peace deal is signed...maybe not. But the motivation to attack would be almost fully eliminated and that tiny minority that would still conspire to violence would have ZERO support among the people. In a nutshell, the Israelis chose land over peace and her supporters are naive footsoldiers in this silly and tragic game.
