Ok, this is a real question, not a point. Israel is a nuclear power which has proven again and again that it can defeat the entire Arab world on the field of battle. Why is Israel so afraid of the Palestinians?? Why not just treat them like any other Arab country? Why not get out of the West Bank and Gaza, and allow the Palestinians to have their homeland. If Palestine attacks Israel at some point, go back in and kick their butts. The other Arab countries have learned not to mess with Israel. Why can't the same pattern be applied to Palestine, a much weaker community?
