Those who lead Israel's defense establishment often come to consider peace with the Palestinians a necessary condition for the country's security.appreciate this divide, consider the late Meir Dagan, who served as a major general in the Israel Defense Forces and then as director of Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency.Gold argued that returning to pre-1967 armistice lines would leave Israel without "defensible borders". He insisted that Israel could guard against threats from the east only if it maintained a military presence in the West Bank and controlled the Jordan River – which runs along the border separating Jordan from Israel and the West Bank.Indeed, the divide between the security establishment and the politicians now governing Israel seems wider than ever.Remarkably, Israel's political leadership has not suffered electorally for ignoring the views of the defense establishment.
