The problem, Jim, is that Israel can't get peace in exchange for land as long as Israel's opponents aim to completely cancel Israel, there are no boundaries that Hamas recognizes as Israel's home, they just want to destroy Israel as the Arabs Countries and the Palestinians tried to do in 1948 and 1967, to name two important moments, not the only ones. They don't want Israel and a Palestinian State to live in peace. They didn't accept it in 1947, they are not accepting it nowadays. I agree with you that Israel must cede some land that it conquered when Israel won wars against its opponents, but I'd like you to agree with me that this land must be ceded in exchange for peace and mutual recognition. Otherwise, it would happen again what happened when Israel left Gaza, and got in exchange the rockets fired against its civilians from the Gazan territory. Of course, I'm aware that there are many extremists in Israel as well, and I think that keeping building settlements on the land that I hope will become the state of Palestine is unacceptable and blind. But you must have somebody to make a deal with and sign a treaty: Israel is without this counterpart since it was born.
