=== You can't have a power vacuum such as existed when the British administered Palestine.
=== Sooner or later you are going to be faced with a war when an outside entity babysits a piece of property hotly contested by two indigenous entities. This dynamic is built right into creation.
So ... where we are reserving for ourselves the "Security Services" and assurances (mostly financial) necessary to "babysit" the nations we're presently liberating (Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq all containing some pretty hostile indigenous entities), are you saying we're doomed to failure because -- as with our "babysitting" Israel -- the dynamic that shall (self)defeat us is "built right into creation"?

Most of Eretz Israel. In other words, they were administering land God promised to the Jews. I have no problem with them administering the land...after all, God kicked the Jews out for a while...but He promised that they would one day return. It was when the British began trying to halt the return of the Jews that they became trespassers, and on the wrong side of God's prophetic plan.
