What would happen to those from whom it is dispossessed (Israeli Jews, presumably)? How can this be carried out without turning the current situation on its head, with Palestinians and Jewish Israelis merely changing places in the social hierarchy? It's all very well to speak of a secular state consisting of individuals without any special standing for religious or ethnic groups, but how is that to be established and maintained on the ground when the self-concepts of the vast majority of the people involved, both Arab and Jewish, consist of their their ethnic/religious identities? On Which One Democratic State?
