Beinart fools himself by aspiring for benevolent, liberal Zionism. The Zionism of Ben-Gurion and his party MAPAI was pragmatic but nevertheless maximalist and expansionist ideologically. The only difference between it and the Revisionist Zionism of Zabotinsky was in the rhetorics. What is taking place today is a creeping implementation of both. Zionism has always been maximalist, aiming wishfully to "transfer" the Palestinians out of Eretz Yisrael.
