We have reached a parting of the ways, and Israel must decide what it wishes to hang on to. What Israel doesn't seem to get is that the US would be about as happy to simply have reason to divorce Israel as it would to have the Israeli/Palestinian conflict successfully resolved. Either one would mitigate the US's problem, which is the perception of the US in the Muslim world. If Israel wants the land more than they want the extraordinary support from the US then so be it. If Israel wants the extraordinary support to continue it must give up the land. The US would be content either way, because either way will eventually lead to the same outcome. It is just that one way, holding and taking more land, will eventually lead to a lot more dead Israelis then would settling the conflict. Israel must choose.
