If you "refrain from suggesting specific steps Israel should take" that you would also choose to refrain from suggesting the steps Israel should NOT take.

You claim that "an aggressive step like "transferring" Palestinian Arabs out of the West Bank would be counterproductive for Israel" yet when one looks at the prospect of uprooting 70,000 Jews from those areas, which do you think would be more counterproductive?
