Haaretz says (what Ben White reported on this site yesterday), that the Israeli colonization of the West Bank is irreversible, that Netanyahu won't accept the Quartet's insistence on the '67 borders as the basis for negotiation of the future Palestinian state:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday rejected a Palestinian demand that direct negotiations be based on a statement by the Quartet confirming its position that the future Palestinian state will be based on the 1967 borders.
And so is made public the fiction that the Obama administration has been in on for the last year, that somehow a two-state-solution can be cobbled within the settlement blocs. It is a fiction because (as the Quartet and the Arab league have stated) these fluid borders create Palestinian enclaves and destroy the idea of a viable state with a real capital. This reality that Haaretz acknowledges is the reason that many people on this site say that the two-state solution is dead.
But in Washington, to be taken seriously, you must say you are sworn to two states. Even as Washington refused to take Netanyahu on, even as Palestinians live in Jim Crow conditions. And let us be clear, these borders that deny political self-determination to the Palestinians are the outcome of the ongoing policy of Likudnik Zionists for 40 years now to colonize the biblical West Bank, and the U.S. has never done anything really to counter that policy, because of special-interest pressure, which is why I say that Palestinian statelessness is the achievement of American Jews.
