Mr. Burston is right once more. There is one more reason for any Israeli, right, left, or center, to worry about what will happen in the event of a real peace; a catastrophic and bloody civil war is waiting in the wings. The only way out of the impasse may be a tri-state resolution, to wit: 1) A free and democratic Palestine, capital: Al Quds. 2) A free and democratic Israel. capital: Tel Aviv ? 3) A religious Kingdom of Israel composed of Jerusalem and whatever other lands agreed to in a tripartite arrangement. It is a pipe dream I suppose, but the alternatives, however well founded in apparent reality, are the stuff of nightmares. It is not impossible that in the future the democratic states would combine in a Federal, or Confederated Republic of"Canaan" (the choice of names is, at this point, of no importance).
