"There is one single, major impediment to Israel doing either. It is the belief/wish-dream of the religious and political right in a Greater Israel, stretching from the Mediterranean to the Jordan" There are several other impediments to peace: 1. The Palestinians refuse to recognize the Jews' right to a Jewish State in Palestine, mandated by the UN Resolution of 29 November 1947. This, even though PM Netanyahu claims that he recognizes the right of the Arabs to an Arab State in Palestine. 2. The Palestinians demand a "Right of Return", which would inundate Israel with Arabs and upset the demographic balance. No Jewish political party, right or left, religious or secular, is willing to accept that. There are a few more impediments on the part of the Palestinians I could mention, if I had world enough and time.
