How long does it take for a democracy to turn mature. A few fair elections uninterrupted by any coups. For this to be the expectation, will take time. If that expectation is there then its a mature democracy.
Let's imagine the scenario of Israel surrounded by democracies. Is Israel better off or not ?
There will always be the west bank & Gaza. They have to go democratic too.
Terrorism against Israel should go down from Non-pal sources. There might still be some residual Pal elements left but it will become harder for them to operate.
So it would appear that DPT is in Israel's favour
