It's very good and very important that the US assists Israel and provides it with military hardware. But the direst need for Israel is the legitimation to use these capabilities, the right of Israel to defend itself. I think, the US support for Israel's right to defend itself would be much more important for the success of the peace talks. For example, the US unequivocal stance in regard of Goldstone report of Gaza flotilla incident. Than we in Israel would have known, that Israel's withdrawal from Gaza was good for Israel, for its international standing, and that now, when Israel is no longer in Gaza, it has more freedom to defend itself against aggression, emanating from Gaza. And therefore, it would be good for Israel to leave the West Bank, too. Unfortunately, what we see right now is exactly the opposite. The Europe and the USA made very clear, that concessions and withdrawals make Israel's international standing worse, its freedom to defend itself even more limited and its very right to exist questioned. Many Israelis, as the result, wonder, if it worth to make more concessions at all.
