    The Palestinian Chief Negotiator just said that the two-state solution is effectively dead, and that the Palestinians new goal should be One State (Israel) with equal rights for the Palestinians.


    Which, of course, would end Israel as a Jewish state (which it arguably isn't now, with 22% of the Israeli population already being non-Jewish or Arab).

    Israel cannot be a Jewish state while being also democratic. If they go the one-state route, it can't be an apartheid state.

I had not heard that they had an official position on things yet. The ambassador to the US said yesterday that they still had to discuss what this meant and what their options were at present.

The one state solution does not seem ideal for them. With the hard right in control it is hard to imagine they are treated to well or as equals in many respects.

Look Raist bunnies...
