    The rejection of the binational state rests on several questionable assumptions. First, that intercommunal hostility renders it impractical. Anyone who is frank about the level of racial hostility in the US will recognize that this isn't so. The United States works fairly well -- and the bulk of Whites and Blacks here are most assuredly estranged from each other, however much people may kid themselves otherwise. Second, that 'the Arabs' form some kind of monolithic block. Bedouins, Christians, Druze, city dwellers, villagers...you've got to be kidding. Comparatively speaking, the Jews have an unchallenged plurality as the only group in Palestine with any cohesion at all. Third, that superior Jewish economic and educational strength means nothing at all. No one can guarantee anything for all time, but over any reasonably visible distance, Jews would be certain to dominate a bi-national state. The only reason not to let go is an unwillingness to sacrifice total supremacy.
