    If the right of return was given Israel could soon be destroyed as a Jewish homeland. It may leave Israel open to charges of racism but if it is to survive it has to be the case. This said, the racism that exists within Israel where non-Jewish citizens are treated as secondary beings cannot be condoned under any circumstances. In this case, it is not a question of Israel's survival. The best answer to an imperfect situation is 2-states for 2-peoples and an equitable sharing of the land. Who are those who seek a single state? There are the extremists who are so befuddled by their ideological beliefs that somehow they stupidly believe that in such a situation Israel would survive as a Jewish homeland. But the overwhelming majority are people who will at best not care but in most cases will welcome the end of Israel as a Jewish homeland. To me that is an obvious case of racism. It will give the Palestinians a state and deprive the Jews of theirs. Those who favour one group of people over another are racists. 2-states for 2-peoples is the answer and it will eventually happen. An overwhelming majority of Israelis know that is the only answer that can ensure their survival and they are not stupid enough to kill off the state. Kerry has helped Israel face up to its options and within the Jewish community - both in Israel and the diaspora - this message is being repeated more stridently and frequently than ever before. Israelis knew there would come a time when they could no longer bury their heads in the sand and that time seems to be fast approaching.
