The U. S. is still the super power in the world but can no longer determine what happens in the Mideast. So, Israel, too, has to accept the fact that the 'status quo', in which they dominate the region, no longer exists. To secure the safety of the state of Israel and to keep from becoming more isolated from the international community, Israel needs to integrate in the region. Making a genuine effort to negotiate a Palestinian state would be an excellent start.
