    Too many Israelis and all of the right wing believe that they can continue to occupy 4 million people in perpetuity. That all of the land between the Jordan and the Mediterranean sea should belong to Israel. However, unwilling to assert that and claim a single state with equal political and economic rights for all, Israel has perpetuated the fiction that it favors a Palestinian state, just not now, just not while peace endures and settlements can be built and expanded without consequence. There really is no response to the Abbas requirements for it would mean recognizing what Israel has so far refused to recognize--that the current state of affairs cannot last forever, and it really is a choice between a viable contiguous Palestinian state and a single state with equality for all. Distractions can not be counted on to last forever, Iran, Syria, Palestinian resistance to occupation do not obviate the necessity of justice for an occupied people. Deep down the Jewish soul recognizes this, what Israel truly lacks are leaders of vision that will bring together Palestinian dreams of self-determination and the Jewish commitment to justice.
