    I too, wonder this, because the most important map is not the one from Taba or the one on Obama's desk. To me, the most important map is the one they give you at the Herz counter when you rent a car in Tel Aviv. That map shows a binational state already in existence. Its borders are the River and the Sea. The fact that half of the people living within this map do not have citizenship in the State with which the map is labelled is less important than the borders of the State and the people living there right now. Citizenship changes over time, as we Jews well know. This is not my dream and not my wish. I am a real Zionist -- the old-fashioned kind, the one who believes in both a Jewish and a democratic state. But I do not have 10 children and the settlers, the modern Orthodox, the Hareidim, and the Islamic fundamentalists do.
