The left dare not forget that this is how Abbas and his cheering Palastinain multitudes regard the people who drove the Sbarro suicide bombers to their destinations and who lynched Israeli reservists who took a wrong turn. The left dare not forget the Israel bashers who fall over themselves to "explain" these atrocities when they don't ignore them altogether. Most of all, the left must understand that a two state solution means living cheek to jowl with people who celebrate murder of Jews as heroic and whose national ethos is that, regardless of borders, Israel should be tolerated only because nothing can be done about it. Democracy is on the side of a two state solution. Morality is on the side of giving Palastinains national self expression if not inconsistent with Israel's existence, Sanity is on the side of keeping Israel's strategic position strong, Israel's enemies weak, and Israel's powder dry. If a two state solution cannot be worked out with acceptable risks within those parameters, then the two state solution will have to go by the board.
