No, this is of their own volition. THEY were the ones that have turned down a sovereign Arab state on multiple occasions. They are not passive pawns, they are active instigators who know exactly what they're doing. They have been turning down the "2 state solution" since the 1930s and yet continually blame the Jews for it even though the Jews have been the ones accepting these deals. When their leadership said long ago it was either push the Jews into the sea or the Arabs will be pushed into the desert, they're getting what they asked for and are being pushed into the desert.
The Jews should be given ALL disputed territories and the populations therein expelled to nearby Arab countries. Muslim lands extend from Morocco to Indonesia, they do not need Israel or the territories, period.
