    because Sharon like all the rest made a two-state solution an absolute impossibility and that leaves only one outcome, a one-state solution. That state must be a democracy - occupation, colonisation and apartheid cannot and will not last and that state will have a Palestinian majority. While a religious state for Jews was always doomed, there is no doubt in a two-state solution it might have lasted for some decades, but, being non-democratic, it would ultimately fail, however, with a one-state solution there can be no theocratic Israel and with a Palestinian majority in the new nation it is unlikely it will even be called Israel. Sharon like all the rest, mired in delusion, arrogance and ignorance has sown the seeds of the end of a religious state for Jews but that is probably for the best. Such a state would be backward and religiously racist anyway.
