Ronnie, in the "perfect world" democracy wouldn't be needed as it is the optimal way of dealing with wolds imperfection. When used alone the notion "perfect" has this imperfection of ommission "to whom it is perfect". For the Arabs one of the conditions of their "perfect" might be the absence of Israel; for the Israeli "perfect" it would be the absence of Arabs and obstacles to spread the territory indefinitelly. Meanwhile up till now the Israel had better means to disregard the Palestinian's "perfect" ro even "not bad" and to implement their own "perfect". The Greater Israel idea took root ever since Jabotinsky whenever the pragmatic circumstances (force at hand, political opportunities) allowed and as such it is more of an ideological "biblical" vision than the reaction to Intifada, Palestinian national agenda and its means. The settlements are not even a security belt. Israel can strike areas like Iran any moment and the settlements don't stop bombers, rather produce them.
