    For the past few decades it has been dispalced by a form of religio/nationalist extremism based on the Balkan model. It is ethnocentrism gone mad. It is racist, scornful and contemptuous of the other, arrogant and embodies a sense of divine election which places the ethnos above the rest of humanity. It is based on the biblical imperative (in their interpretation) that nothing is more sacred to the Jews than Eretz Israel within as maximum borders as is possible to achieve at any given time. It is not interested in partners, either complacent ones or contrary ones. These so called partners are nothing to them but enemies who must be gotten rid of. You hear the agenda for this is the colonies, synagogues, schools and yeshivot in the occupied territories. Democracy is a gentile perversion. Hence, as sure as day changes into night, Israel will set up the conditions these imminent talks to fail and of course they will blame the "partner" they have no intention of ever accepting as a partner. This is an ideology that MUST live in a constant state of emnity with their neighbours, since they need enemies not neighbours or partbners for their racist ideology to thrive..
