The withdrawal from Sinai was a calculated risk; a withdrawal from the Judea & Samaria mountain ridges would be a lethal gamble.

Mideast peace agreements are as durable as are Arab regimes, policies and accords, which have been - since the 7th century - the globe’s most shifty...

95% of Judea & Samaria Arabs reside in the Palestinian Authority. 60% of Judea & Samaria is empty.

1. The dramatic developments in Tunisia and Egypt – and the potential regional destabilizing ripple effects which could dwarf the Egyptian upheaval – have a dramatic impact on the state of national and regional security, and therefore have dramatic consequences upon national and regional security requirements.

The Tunisian turmoil – and its potential ripple effects - reaffirm the critical significance of the Judea and Samaria mountain ridges to the national security and survival of the Jewish State.

133 Jews were murdered in Hebron, Jerusalem, Motza, Safed and Tel Aviv during a rampage of Arab terrorism in August 1929, 19 years before the establishment of the Jewish State, 38 years before the 1967 War and 39 years before the return of Jews to Hebron. 133 fatalities in 1929 – out of a 175,000 Jewish population – are proportionally equal to 4,560 fatalities in Israel or 230,000 fatalities in the USA in 2009!

The public debate on the future of Judea and Samaria is top heavy with sound bites, but very low on serious examination of national security implications. Conventional wisdom suggests that ballistic missiles and advanced military technologies have undermined the importance of ground barriers, such as the mountain ridges of Judea and Samaria. Is that true?

In 1967, Israel demolished the military forces of Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Consequently, Israel developed the "Low Probability Arab Offensive" concept. The 1973 War – along with Mideast unpredictability and objective intelligence constraints - devastated that concept, threatening the Jewish State with oblivion.
In 2003, following the US occupation of Iraq, Israel recycled the "Low Probability" concept. Israel assumed that the US military in Iraq precluded the possibility of a conventional Arab offensive on Israel's eastern front – a lethal threat to Israel's "soft belly" (Jerusalem and greater Tel Aviv). However, in 2009, that concept has been rendered obsolete by the gradual US evacuation of Iraq and by the lowered US military profile in the Mideast, which have energized Mideast radicals. The gradual US withdrawal from Iraq should free Israel from the "Low Probability" delusion, thus preventing a 1973 War-like disaster.

How realistic are those, who blur the security irreplaceability of the Judea & Samaria (J&S) mountain ridges, which constitute the "Golan Heights" of Jerusalem, of the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem freeway and of the coastal plain?
If they would merely assume that the peace treaty with Jordan, and the demise of the Saddam regime, have eliminated the deadly threat from Israel's eastern front, DA'YE'NOU (it would have sufficed).
