1. Really bad, naive argument...


No, we must stop the occupation for ourselves. So that we can look ourselves in the eyes. So that we can legitimately ask for, and receive, support from the world. So that we can return to being human.

Endangering hundreds of thousands of Israeli lives by having Hamas and their lunatic friends just meters away from civilians is something the vast majority of Israelis do not want - and for good reason. No population would want al-Qaeda, ISIS, or Islamic Jihad just meters from their doorstep - even if they only incited people to throw rocks & stab women & children.

And the world will not support Israel at all given an end to the occupation.

The same nasty hatred, BDS, and anti-Israel sentiment would only increase once Israelis are attacked from so close. The Jews will still be blamed for provoking or starting it. For committing even more "genocide"....

Being "human" (by inviting more war & death) doesn't trump staying alive.
