Yeah, stupid! In the late 1930s and into the war (WW!!) years Brit Shalom, a group of Jews and Arabs in Mandatory Palestine that included the president of the Hebrew University, Judah Magnes, Henrietta Szold, Martin Buber, and . . . Mr. Nusseibeh"s uncle. Even Berl Katzenelson is supposed to have toyed with idea. If I am correct they proposed a Binational State. The idea came to a head at the eve of the Biltmore Declaration in 1942, the one that declared the need for a Jewish State in what was then Mandatory Palestine. Brit Shalom was attacked vigorously by the Zionist leadership, and its ideas were thrown into the dust bin of history. You, my feathered friend, are reinventing the wheel and wasting precious ink and paper on an idea that was suggested, trashed, and might be worthy of discussion. Meyleh, in your native Canada, somehow the Francophones still accept the idea of binationalism, and the Belgians, have come to an accomodation of sorts. In both cases, the tensions remain, with separatist rumblings popping up from time to time. The next time you come up with some bright ideas, you might do "your homework" before you set your hands to the keyboard.
