Funny to read about guys like this who completely miss the point of his speech.

In point of fact, Ben could have agreed to abandon Israel completely, but only if the Palestinians agreed to recognize the right of Jews to exist, in the world, anywhere, and the Palis would walk away from table.

This has been going on for too long, though. What happens when you put what should be vital, non-negotiable items on the table is, even though the Palis walk away and you don’t have to actually give anything up, the ante is now higher, and next time you have to offer something even more sacred and inviolable in order to show that you’re serious about wanting piece. After all, what you offered last time wasn’t enough, so now you have to sweeten the pot. We actually have given up, starting in 1923, the entire East bank of the Jordan River, Hebron, Judah and Shomron, Gush Etzion, the Sinai, Aza, military presence in South Lebanon, and still have no peace, only pieces. Enough already. Stop putting things on the table! It is sold even though nobody buys it.

If Egypt attacks, take back Sinai. If Hamas attacks, take back Aza. If the PA attacks by means of any of its many surrogates, take back bits and pieces for each attack, and annex whatever you take back. Offer full citizenship to anyone who will swear loyalty to Israel, and an emigration package for anyone who wishes to leave. Deal fairly but firmly with all who remain but will not take the loyalty oath, and expel anyone who makes trouble.
