Some leftists are beginning to recognize reality
US President Barack Obama and much of the international community blame Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the lack of a peace deal with the Palestinians. But even leading left-wing politicians admit it’s more complicated than that, and that a two-state solution is simply no longer viable.
“We have reached the point in time when there is no feasibility for the two-state solution,” said Zionist Union (Labor) MK Ayelet Nahmias-Verbin during a visit to the Etzion Bloc of Jewish settlements that she insisted “is a consensus in my party.”
Unfortunately, she still falls back on a weak position:
Still, even without birthing a Palestinian state and while retaining control of large Jewish settlement blocs, Nahmias-Verbin believes Israel must find a way to separate from the Palestinians.
“We need to create a security solution and that for my party the separation is that solution,” she told Israel National News.
If they cannot let go of this separation nonsense, then they truly have no faith in their ability to influence any community for the better. Why not ponder a better idea like differentiating between Muslims from Christians? I'm sure some of the latter would be very glad if they did that.
