I am opposed to Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza, and
consider it beyond doubt that their dismantling will have to be part and
parcel of any comprehensive Middle East peace. I also note that the
compulsory military service of its citizens is a national survival necessity
for a tiny nation composed of only a few million people that has been
simultaneously attacked by several geographically larger and more
populous nations three times in its half century history, and is under
constant internal barrage from jihadist suicide bombers.
