in response to reader comment: Policy, Strategy, and Tactics

Here are the realities in a nutshell:
(1) Any territory in Judea-Samaria (aka "the Occupation") vacated by Israel military would inevitably be taken over by Hamas, turning region into bloody inferno for Jews and Arabs alike;
(2) If Israel is confined back to anything resembling indefensible pre-67 lines, inflow of millions of "returning refugees", hordes of Jihadist combatants, piles of lethal weapons from across Jordan Valley border, would largely seal Israel's fate;
(3) Only co-existential and sustainable path remains a 3-STATE SOLUTION based on (a) Israel; (b) Egypt (with link to Gaza, turned into Dubai-on-the-Med with Gulf funds, Israeli tech); and (c) Pal-Jordan Federation on most Arab-inhabited segments of Judea-Samaria, with Israeli sovereignty over rest of Area C including Jordan Valley;
(4) Anyone still pushing for delusional 2-State agenda, knowingly or unknowingly, only serves PLO's 1974 Phased Plan for Israel's destruction in stages!
