I often comment on Burston's columns but Burston often censors critical commentary, so lets see if this gets published. In Burston's definition of "compromise", Palestinians have to accept Israeli sovereignty on 77% of their historic homeland, even allowing immigrants like himself superior rights to the land than refugees who were expelled from their homes. At the same time, Palestinians are expected to renounce their rights derived in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, with the remaining population forced onto the remaining 23% of the land. All Israel gives up is a few far flung settlements, their claim to which is merely a case of religious fundamentalism anyway, and which benefit Zionists in the long run. This is hardly a compromise. It certainly takes a lot of Chutzpah to squat on stolen land, claim superior rights to the land than the indigenous people, pronounce the conflict "suffocatingly complex", and then cast yourself as a believer in "compromise".
