Israel (and the West) may have only one long-term option

Your final paragraph is the crux of the matter. The West (as well as Israel) faces a long term threat from militant Islam. As such, unpopular though it may be, if Islam cannot reform itself in a relatively short timescale, compared to the Christian Reformation period, then there is an increasing probability that all out conflict will ensue with the Islamic ideology that drives both the Islamic hatred of Israel/Jews and Western culture/values. Any distinction of 'moderate' and militant Islam is liable to become blurred in such a scenario.
