    The Saudi plan was a non-starter. It required Israel to make every tangible concession, including indefensible borders, as well as the "return" not only of refugees, but of their descendants (in every other international law context "refugees" refers to people who themselves have fled during war, _not_ their descendants as well). Then there would be 3 Palestinian states, one in Jordan (which is already more than 70% Palestinian), WB/Gaza, and eventually Israel itself. All this in exchange for the mere promise of peace from Arab governments, which is not credible, for even if they are sincere, they are unable to control non-state actors like Hezbollah. Iran (not an Arab country) has said that even if Israel makes peace with the Palestinians, it will continue to regard Israel as an enemy to be destroyed. Merely giving the Arabs everything they ask for (as if there had been no Arab efforts to destroy Israel, and no legitimate territorial cost for those attempts) would be suicide.

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
