I forwarded a Huffington Post item to some friends. One of them responded to my forwarding of the item with a well-merited sarcastic comment:
“Well duh!! After 50 years of Israeli stalling we have only a few people declaring the two state solution dead. What a joke!! The two state solution was dead when Rabin was assassinated.”
I responded, "But, Robert, you and I know this, but still, the corpse of the two state illusion—or delusion—will only be buried when the US, both public opinion and the government realize that the pungent corpse of Zionism needs to meet the same fate.
"The unequal treatment of Palestinian Israelis hides behind the appearance of equal rights (one person one vote) via religious management of family law and education, even before we consider the millions of Palestinians in “Greater Israel,” totally deprived of any human and civil rights.
"It will take a world-wide anti-apartheid movement, spearheaded by the US, similar to the one that brought down apartheid in South Africa, to finally demolish this hateful system. But as in SA, the movement requires the Palestinians themselves, in league with a few enlightened Israelis, to lay a spark in the tinder box. Not you or I but the Palestinians themselves, both in and outside of Israeli, to abandon the ill- de-lusion before the rest of us can break through the fog."
