  •  Hey, I'm not fond of a two-state solution either! (1+ / 0-)

    Of course, my hoped-for one-state solution would begin with the ruthless extirpation of people like Meshaal who'd make a pluralist single-state impossible. If he really thinks a single state on the Hamas model is possible then he's crazier than Joseph Kony.  At least the radical Right in Israel can point to an actual non-failed state on basically all of the territory they hoped for.

    •  Maybe two-state can work as a transition stage. (1+ / 0-)

      But I was serious about the drones.

      You'd think they'd have 'em by now.

      Maybe they figure that would lead to more terrorism?

    •  Two state makes the most sense (4+ / 0-)

      Otherwise Palestinians would be second class citizens with no voting rights and suppressed by the IDF AND their native government.  However I've seen your posts before, and human dignity is low on your level of priorities.

      This is just a case of two right wing nutcase factions, one in Israel the other in Palestine, going at each other.  Except one has more guns.

      And if israel essentially turns fascist, then I'd call it a failed state.

        So I agree with the thrust of your characterization of my views,  just with a slight twist, in my favor predictably enough.

      •  It's a long-standing concern (0+ / 0-)

        in Israel (i.e. that an Arab majority will form and basically vote Israel as a Jewish state back out of existence), so there's quite a few pragmatists in Israel who want the Palestinians to have a separate state they can go to.

        You can understand Israeli frustration when their two options seem to always be "Be the bad guy oppressive minority in a new Apartheid state" or "Acquiesce to the creation of an independent country which wants to destroy us."

        Not that I condone a lot of the evil crap Israel has done over the years, but if ever there's a real historical use for the phrase "A plague on both your houses", it plays out daily over there.
