"...let demographics and time take car of the matter in the long term."

Sure, Abdulkarim, go ahead and wait. Enjoy yourself! You have waited (?) and done your best for 65 years to destroy Israel, and you may well pursue that course for another thousand without avail. Only if you ever prove by your actions - only by your actions, not by your words - that you can and have been living in peace over an extended time, then and only then, a Sovereign State of Palestine will become conceivable. I do not expect to live to see that day, nor do I believe my great grandchildren will, but I cannot say that it is entirely inconceivable - perhaps hundreds of years down the road. But Israel is and will remain a Jewish state, and the only Sovereign Nation in what you now deem Palestine.
