    Gideon Levy is not my favorite writer b/c he totally associates with an Arab side of conflict, but i agree with this piece: ISRAEL is under dilemma: either separate itself from palestinians, but it means to move settlers which mean civil war and so on... the other alternative is a single state palestine with jews and arabs: one person one vote. sounds like utopia, but is israel ready to give israeli pasports to hamas-cheering people in gaza and west bank? Are israelis ready to renounce the law of return if new Pal citizens would vote for it? Is Israel ready for communists 30% and balad 20% in Knesset? So separation is only realistic alternative, even if it may be suicidal for israel security or will it be? Reality on the ground is that two people - jews and Arabs share a country and mutual dislike, and i do not see a binational country possible. So settlers should be moved within Green Line. Maybe countries like Australia, Canada and USA may give settlers alternative to emigrate?
