Israel’s victory in the Six Day War was a triumph of soldiering and military technology. Israel still retains vast military superiority over its neighbors, and obviously over the Palestinians. There is a large body of opinion in the Israeli military, and former Israeli military, that Israel’s security no longer depends on holding the West Bank. It is the age of drones, the Patriot system, precise targeting. In fact, Israel’s security would be enhanced by a land for peace deal. This is at the core of my personal view that it is time for Israel to act unilaterally to end the occupation. This is not out of any softness or naivte about the potential for attacks from Palestinian territory. It is a strategic calculation, that happens to also be the right thing to do.
