What Israel needs for the time being is the committed backing of a powerful ally like the US in war and in peace.
Once the EU, Palestinian factions and hostile M.E. states realize that the US is unwavering in their support for Israel, they might think it better to negotiate a peace agreement with Israel, rather then backdoor UN agreements or outright war and precipitate a confrontation with the US.

FREE ALI MOHAMMED AL-NIMR!
Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, a prisoner in Saudi Arabia who was sentenced to death as a minor, faces "death by crucifixion" after a final appeal has been dismissed. He was arrested in 2012 when he was just 17, during a crackdown on anti-government protests in the Shiite province of Qatif. According to the International Business Times, Al-Nimr was accused by the authorities of participation in illegal protests and of firearms offences, despite there being no evidence to justify the latter charge.
