I have two major problems with this map:
- It does nothing to change the fact that Israel is 9 miles wide at its narrowest. Downtown Tel Aviv will still be seen from the hills of Palestine and could easily be targeted by missiles and rockets (with little to no warning given to civilians before they hit). As Bibi said during his speech, nobody can live like this.
- Those rivulets of Israeli territory carved out of the West Bank are a disaster waiting to happen. Terrorists from Hamas or the PFLP or Islamic Jihad could take pot shots at settlers all day every day. And if there were ever a conflict between Israel and Palestine (which is probably likely, especially if Hamas stays in or runs the government), those armed gangs could easily cut off those settlements from the rest of Israel. If you thought a territory 9 miles wide was not defensible, how about 1 km wide (or less). You could easily have a bloodbath/massacre on your hands which will make Itamar look like youthful vandalism by comparison.
I recently read, Henry Kissinger's book Diplomacy (a very interesting book for anyone interested in history) and he went on at length about the peace negotiations between the US and North Vietnam. When the US was trying to take it easy on the Vietnamese in order not to "upset them" all they got in return from the Vietnamese was a bunch of games. The Vietnamese only started getting serious when they were actually in danger of losing the war after the US started bombing the north and started acting like they actually wanted to win the war. That is what got the US troops out. I think a similar strategy would work with the Palestinians. Convince them that they might get less territory the longer they stall and you might actually get a deal from them.
