It's quite true that Israel will be illegitmate for many Arabs for generations, but it is also true that Egypt and Jordan have peace treaties with Israel, Fatah is not Hamas, and Fayyed is doing real nation building. So, can Fayyad build a West Bank State that would not be a threat to Israel? If so, it would be a boon to Israel not to have to occupy the West Bank. It would be well worth getting rid of settlements far from the green line, and it would be prudent to reach a compromise on Jerusalem. If not, then ending the Occupation could just be exchanging one set of problems for another more difficult set of problems. Burston's rhetoric is soaring, and I'd love to agree with it. Ezra's criticism is biting, but, like Burston's, rather one dimensional. The question will not answered by rhetoric. It could be answered by understanding the social and economic currents within the West Bank. I wish Haaretz would present more of that and less rhetoric whether soaring or acerbic.
