"...security guaranteed in a satisfactory manner,..." That's been the crux of the issue all along with Israel and ostensibly what prevents them from moving forward with the Palestinians. No matter how strong (militarily and economically) Israel grows, she should recognize that there simply are no guarantees in life. It could be argued that Israel's sense of security/superiority has actually made it less willing to compromise. Israel will eventually have to summon the courage to take something of a leap of faith if she wishes to enter into an agreement with the Palestinians.
