Lieberman has a secret agenda to create a binational state, but I jest of course. But how do you explain that he is in favor of trashing Oslo? I think he is merely striking poses for the camera. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    I don’t believe Israel will formally revoke the Oslo agreements (though in practice it has done that a long time ago). Such a step would render the PA superfluous if not bring about its total collapse, and that would be the first of the few quick steps towards the single state, so much hated by some of us and loved by others. So I think the the cabinet‘s overt mulling over this idea is sheer blackmail to the PA, because, like Israel, the PA abhores a single state, since that means – ahem – a loss of income. This is also my feeling about the report I read yesterday in Haaretz about the IDF Civil Administration maneuvering for state ownership of the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, as well as the settlement. Such a move would surely push Israel into absorbing what remains of the West Bank, which means Palestine-Israel would eventually become a single state. So I think that report, like the one about revoking Oslo, is blackmail. Many Israelis for sure want the whole of Palestine and even beyond, but I don’t think any sane Israeli desires the human baggage that will come along. Israel’s advantage lies in the current situation, whereby it is able to expand the settlements and hope at the same time that more and more Palestinians would cut out and emigrate
