    Any existential threat from abroad evaporates

    cannot be guaranteed.

    And the so-called "demographic threat" is also very real.  

    Of course there would not be the same drive to attack from outside the state when there are equal rights and the state is on it's way to becoming majority Palestinian -- and we know that demographics would eventually and inevitably render this "bi-national state" majority Palestinian.

    I'm not claiming that all Palestinians seek the destruction of Israel.  But the Israelis will never willingly take a chance on the ones who might. And they will eventually have to make moves to preserve their majority status (ie: give up territory), as they wish to retain a semblance of democracy.

    In an ideal world, a binational state sounds ideal, but it will never be acceptable to the Israelis.

    So why not pursue a path toward peace which has the potential to be acceptable to both sides:  the two-state solution?
