What is the Ideology of the Israeli Deep State?

The approach of the Israeli Deep State is Zionist pragmatism. This means that Israeli governments of various political colors are used to realize strategic projects conceived by the Israeli Deep State which after all is responsible for Israeli long-term strategic planning. How is it possible, you may ask, that the Israeli Deep State was behind both the indigenous restoration project in Judea and Samaria and the Oslo scam? Both were made to seem profoundly ideological, each in their own way but were actually motivated by Realpolitik. The indigenous restoration project successfully established a network of Israeli towns connected by a grid of Israeli roads allowing the IDF operational mobility in times of war without having to pass through Arab towns. This is intended to give Israel a foothold in Judea and Samaria in the event of an Eastern Invasion which is now more realistic than ever given the Iranian threat. The Oslo scam realized the project of establishing a semi-permanent Palestinian autonomy whereby Israel would control Judea and Samaria but not its Palestinian population. The two projects were based on keeping the options open according to which Judea and Samaria could either be partitioned or entirely annexed by Israel as depending on the eventual demographic outcome. This strategic approach could be described as temporal-demographic strategic ambiguity.
