    Israel really WANTS peace. It just wants peace entirely on its own terms. You're right, in a way, when you say, "There are no terrorist attacks so there are no Arabs." But you should realize that the Israeli DESIRE is rather, "When there are no Arabs, there are no attacks", i.e. there is peace. This is the only peace that Israel as a whole desires, as you alluded to when you said "Maybe they will finally fulfill our dreams and disappear". The entire Zionist settler enterprise, the blockade on Gaza, the treatment of Israeli Arabs and Bedouin as second-class citizens (or worse) within the Israeli "democracy"... All of this is designed to eliminate or drive away the "others", so that Israel can be entirely a Jewish state and yet claim to be a democracy. And, of course, Israel must obtain for itself as much as possible of any potentially available land, water and mineral rights, and other strategic resources for its Jewish citizens. Will it stop with the Golan, Sinai, West Bank, etc?
