israel popped up on the map ONLY DUE to international support, had the US and vital european powers not recognized israel, israel today would be refered to as the zionist territories. they are willing to lose this priviliage to gain a few more plots of palestinian lands. look back 5 years, and 10, and 15. and compare israel's international popularity back then and now. they are losing support by the millions. when these millions make it clear to their goverments that its either israel or them. their governments will cave in, and lobbies wont matter.
