Sovreign Israel was persuaded by settler-shtadlanim to invest a disproportionate fortune in settlement infrastructure, at the expense of Israel's border towns, that are floundering today. The IDF invests a disproportionate amount of its budget on settler protection.

You are strong on vanquishing weakened and disenfranchized Pals, but you are not strong on peace, as long as you can stay put at their expense, and ours. Jakoobson presents an acceptable alternative.
