Gideon Levy is excellent as usual in his new article about the fake peace process and the silly show Obama and Bibi just put on. But one thing stood out fat me. In the first and last sentences of the article, Levy stated the obvious truth which I rejoice in but which he seems to regard as a failure:
The chance that a binational state will be established has improved as a result [of Obama's making nice with Netanyahu]
and his finish to the article:
Get ready for the binational state, or the next round of bloodletting.
Let me say that Gideon Levy has been an incredible inspiration to me for a long time. My work in Students for Justice in Palestine at Cal State Northridge was made much easier due to being able to use him as an example of a Jewish Israeli critic of Israeli policies. I also know for a fact that many a Palestinian and Muslim I know have been heartened upon learning of a Jewish Israeli who thinks more like them than the Israel Lobby.
I would like to give such a courageous and accomplished man the benefit of the doubt. However, these quotes really do sound like the typical "liberal" Zionist "let's get the two state solution before it's too late and we have to share a state with Palestinians" J-Street esque sentiment.
