25% of Israeli's Jewish population, probably close to a million people, have abandoned secular ideology and believe that Beit El, East Jerusalem and Hebron are as part of Israel as Tel Aviv is. This minority, unfortunately, can be very violent, very vocal, and garners much sympathy from the secular majority. This group, that is still endeared to the teachings of the likes of Meir Kahane, do not consider themselves extremists, and regardless of the odds, they believe that God will support them in their 'return' to their land. God, for now, takes the form of IDF Soldiers and the US Military. Until their 'God' leaves them to their own methods, the conflict will continue. It will probably end in their miscalculation, rather than peace. Secular Israelis see the danger, but are not being vocal enough, because they fear to enrage the extremist Jews amongst them.
