There is no "Berlin Wall." The Berlin Wall was designed by the East German government to keep East Germans from defecting to the West. Construction of the security fence was initiated to keep Palestinian suicide bombers out of Israel. While the security fence has created inconvenience for Palestinians, saving lives takes precedence over inconvenience. Perhaps when a final settlement is reached, the security fence can and will be dismantled.Do you realize the havoc that Berlin wall is having on the daily lives of Palestinian's?
Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and others of their ilk so happen to belong to that second group and are engaged in a continuous plan of regional destabilization.
2. Although you are correct to a certain point concerning the expense of maintaining an occupied territory, Israel gave back much of that land due to outside political pressure.
They did not have to give back as much land as they did because they could not afford to maintain their presence there. And technically that WAS legitimately their land because they seized it by right of conquest. They were attacked and that land was seized via counter offensive operations in response to those attacks. And as such they were and are under no obligation to give back a damned thing period regardless of previous treaties. The Arab attacks nullified the binding properties of those treaties. Rather difficult to demand an adversary adhere to past treaties when you have declared war on them violating those treaties yourself and you lost the war.
And regardless of all that, Do you think that Israel could not have militarily and economically afforded to at least keep the Temple mount under their control when they took it in the 1967 war? But instead they willingly returned to the Muslims control something that is so near and dear to the Jewish heart?
3. For the sake of argument lets say that Israel gives up it's statehood and even packs up and leaves the region. All the Jews are gone. Not one left in the middle east. Do think that will bring peace to the region? No it will not. Why? Because Iran's primary goal is to create an all Shiite region from sea to shining sea. After Israel they will turn their attentions to the elimination of the Sunni Muslims.
