@ Nathan, Mondoweiss is not a politician so if they want to be one-sided it is irrelevant to this debate. As for “he only way to achieve some of the goals is through a negotiated end of the conflict. However, by negotiating with Israel, the Palestinians will have to accept her existence as a permanent fact of life, and that’s a kind of surrender. ” you seems to forget that the Palestinians have tried to negotiate from 1993 to 2014 without any results to show for it, just more settlements. They have recognised Israel multiple times, I’m still waiting for Israel to recognise the State of Palestine and to withdraw to their international recognised borders.
