Why should Israel give up the west bank if they will be attacked just like it happened when they gave up the Gaza Strip?
- DCCCLXXXVIIILv 71 year agoBest Answer
Israel should not give an inch.
If you show kindness to the animals that attach Israel they will, as in the past, think the kindness as weakness.

Clearly no they should not.
In 1967 Israel gained control of the West Bank and Gaza Strip (from the previous Jordanian and Egyptian occupation respectively) and as an attempt by Israel at “land for peace” under the Oslo Accords, Israel later granted the Palestinians autonomy for part of the West Bank (40%) and the whole of the Gaza Strip, as part of a peace process which anticipated further negotiations for a peace treaty.
Therefore until any peace treaty that may say otherwise, the land remains Israel’s.
Jordanian occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem:
Egyptian occupation of Gaza:
Under the Oslo Accords Israel retains full control of Area C of the West Bank (due to Palestinian breach of the Accords in failing to stop hostile acts - see further below), and in which are the Israeli homes ("settlements") permitted under the Accords.
The Oslo Accords do NOT forbid Israel from building homes / “settlements” in Area C of the West Bank.
The following extracted information about the governance and percentage of land areas of the West Bank, is from:
The Oslo II Accord covers both Gaza and the West Bank.
The Oslo Accords divided the West Bank into three administrative divisions:
Areas A, B and C:
Area A is exclusively administered by the Palestinian Authority, and is approximately 18% of the West Bank.
Area B (Palestinian civil control and joint Israeli-Palestinian security control), is administered by both the Palestinian Authority and Israel, and is approximately 22% of the West Bank.
Area C (full Israeli civil and security control), which contains the Israeli settlements, is administered by Israel.
Area C was intended to be: “... gradually transferred to Palestinian jurisdiction ...” (that is autonomy, not sovereignty) (Article XI). Under the Oslo Accords Area C remains under Israeli control because the Palestinians breached the terms of the Accords:
Source: Choose the “Oslo II Agreement” link on the following webpage:
How did the Palestinians breach the terms of the Accords?
By failing to: “... prevent acts of terrorism crime and hostilities ...” (Article XV).
This is quite clear because:
1) The Palestinian Authority lost control of Gaza to Hamas, which does not recognise the Oslo Accords, is dedicated to Israel’s destruction, and carries out hostile acts; for example numerous barrages of rockets fired at Israeli cities:
2) The “Palestinian Authority” (funded by the “European Union”) and the “Palestinian Liberation Organization” by Palestinian Law, pay a reward-“pension” for the murder of Israeli Jewish civilians including children (see example below).
Israel has already made all the concessions that can be reasonably expected of any nation seeking peace, under the Oslo Accords – Consider: How else did the Palestinians lay their hands on 40% of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza?
Therefore politicians from anti-Israeli countries who criticize Israeli “settlements” (Israeli home-building) on the West Bank, as an “obstacle to peace”, support the Palestinian false-claim to Israeli Area C of the West Bank (to which the Palestinians are not entitled due to their breach of the Oslo Accords) within which are the Israeli homes (“settlements”) permitted under the Accords. The phrase “obstacle to peace” is also a propaganda-phrase that really means obstruction to the Palestinian ongoing war to take (steal) ALL the land of Israel and expel or murder the Jews.
When the Palestinians claim that Israel is:
> “expanding its borders by building ‘illegal-settlements’ ”,
this is the Palestinian false-claim to Israeli Area C of the West Bank, to which the Palestinians are not entitled under the Oslo Accords due to their breach of the Accords.
When the Palestinians claim they want:
> “the pre 1967 war borders”,
this is the Palestinian false-claims to: Israeli Area C and to jointly-administered Area B of the West Bank (to which the Palestinians are not entitled under the Oslo Accords due to their breach of the Accords), and to Jerusalem. Prior the 1967 war, Jordan occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem - The Palestinians cannot make claims on what they never had!
Once the Palestinians had tricked Israel into giving them autonomy of part of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza under the Oslo Accords, the Palestinians since:
> Do not sincerely negotiate any peace treaty.
> Make an unverifiable false-claim to ALL the land of Israel.
> Want to expel the Jews from the Jews ancestral-homeland of Israel.
> Have expelled any Jewish population from all areas under Palestinian control and then falsely-claimed “Apartheid” against Israel !
> Consider themselves at war with Israel.
> Attack Israeli Jewish civilians as policy including children (see example below).
No wonder anti-Semites display such emotional-support for the Palestinians!
Due to anti-Semitism (about which they may also be in denial) many people, possibly hoodwinked by the successful Palestinian propaganda-lies, do not require any reasonable or proper moral standard from the Palestinians.
The Palestinians are paid a reward-“pension” to murder Israeli Jewish civilians, including children:

“The Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund is a fund operated by the Palestinian Authority for the purpose of paying a monthly cash stipend to the families of Palestinians killed, injured or imprisoned for involvement in attacking, assisting in attacking, or planning to attack Israel ...”

“In the Amended Palestinian Prisoners Law 19 of 2013, the payments were actually enhanced for a terrorist who commits a violent act and is jailed.”

The “Palestinian Authority” (which together with the P.L.O. pays the terrorism reward-“Pension” of their “Martyrs Fund”, and also funds Hamas) is itself funded by the “European Union”.
The “Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund” and “Hamas, both brought to you by “European Union” funding of the “Palestinian Authority”:
Thus do many European countries since the Second World War, give outlet to their long-held anti-Semitic desire to see Jews killed; only now by proxy, through funding the Palestinian Arabs who conduct their ongoing war of ethnic-hatred, murder, and territorial ambitions, against Israeli Jews.
While there is no evidence that Israel targets civilians, the Palestinians are addicted to ethnic-hatred of Jews and target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy. The Palestinians cynically whitewash their anti-Jewish hate-war as: “uprising”, “defence”, “desperation”, “struggle”, “resistance”.
Here is an example result from the Palestinian on-going anti-Jewish hate-war:

They should definitely not give it up.
