How can a state based on Jews being the "ubermenschen" be a democracy? It's ridiculous on the face of it, when there are over a million Arab Israelis who are second-class citizens, and then over three million virtual slaves in the Occupied Territories. I'm in favor of the South African solution being applied to Israel: one state, with full and equal rights for all, and an end to the racist laws such as the Law of Return. Mr. Schocken is truly on the right track when he points out that if thousands of young people are marrying each other, whether they be Jew or Muslim, Arab or of European origin, this will be the best guarantee of long-term peace. (Let's not forget that the term "Arab" is a little problematic in these discussions, as many Jews are in fact Arabs!). Make love, not war. End the apartheid state.
