What was the last 20 years all about? Getting the Israelis to admit defeat!

"It's either 2 states or lose the Jewish majority state."
"There's no military solution."
"Israel is illegally occupying Palestinian territory."
"Palestinians will outnumber Jews in [pick your year]."
"Israel is the stronger side and therefore must make the concessions..."
"According to the UN, Jerusalem has no Jewish history..."

Compare the above and add the non-stop media and diplomatic avalanche against Israeli public morale ever since pivoting from "admitting defeat" in the 1993 Oslo Accords and then fighting back in 2000, one can argue that many in the West have basically tried to get Israel to admit defeat in order to close down the conflict. Dr. Pipes' version is the refreshing opposite. Feedback is welcome.
