......because a majority Palestinian population can simply discard that from its political agenda. Maybe the concept of a Zionist state is inherently racist but maybe the UN would not have voted for a Jewish homeland if there had not been a genocide. Maybe there would not be a Jewish state if the Jews did not have a history of forced dispersal and persecution, mainly by Christians. By the mid C20th, the UN had decided that Jews deserved their own state where they could be free from the risk of persecution as a minority within another country and live in a country where their ethos was the dominant feature After all, whether we like it or not, virtually every ethnic group has its own country or countries where it knows that, regardless of how its people are perceived elsewhere, these countries will not discriminate against them on the basis of race, religion or ethnicity. Those who justifiably fear that a single bi-national state will spell the end of Zionism should support 2-states for 2-people as Palestinians are as equally entitled to their own state as we Jews. The solution does not lie with ensuring that the Palestinians are a majority within a single state or with Israel being the colonial master of the Palestinians.
