in response to reader comment: a larger Israel

You're 39 years too late. The opportunity for Eretz Yisrael came in 1967 when the Palestinians in the West Bank, after the invasion by Israel, were packed and ready to flee voluntarily only to be dissuaded by a liberal socialist, namely Moshe Dayan, who thought that the Palestinians and Israelis could live together in friendship----how myopic of him.

If Moshe Dayan had let the Palestinians flee they would have migrated to Syria, Lebanon, but mostly to Jordan where the illegitimate Hashemite government would have been eventually overthrown and a Palestinian state declared----and that would be that----and the West Bank would have been annexed without much of a problem, including Jerusalem.
