    Indded, in the long term, zionism is not a sustainable ideoplogy, at least not what it has become. Israel is riddled with internal contradictions that will never be solved. It has never really solved its central dilemma of how to aspire to be a state that is both Jewish and democratic. From its inception, zionism, certainly its revisionist interpretation that now reigns supreme was always about maximisation of land within both banks of the Jordan and fulfilling the demographic imperative which was the settling of that expanded land with the maximum number of Jews, thus entailing a well planned policy of ethnic cleansing. This has been going on since 1948, and most blatantly since 1967. And even if the government were to go along with Obama's fiction of another 60 days freeze, the government that agreed to such an arrangement would be eaten alive bythe monster they have created;namely the colonists and their political and extra political power and muscle.
