"I'm not naive about the difficulties of negotiating with the Palestinians, but even if you're much more hawkish than I am, my question has always been: what's the endgame? If Israel continues to pursue a hawkish path, what happens? Is a permanent occupation of the West Bank the goal? Is any other outcome even possible? And is that really credible? Is it good for Israel? Will the rest of the world tolerate it forever?" -Kevin Drum

if you look at a map of the aquifers that supply israel, and look at a map of the contested territories (golan heights, west bank), you will see that Israel is unlikely to ever give up the occupation. It may not be politically good for israel but it's insurmountably necessary to their future.
