    What is going on in Israel now in terms of hegemonic rule and Revisionist political dominance is not going away, Brad. The time has come to call all the political intellectuals together and come with a new political vision for an Eretz Yisrael that will be congruent with their sense of decency but will be practically realizable and appealing to many Israelis. But isn't Israel really too ethnocentric and tribal to be tempted by even a modern constitutional paradigm which leaves room for all that ethnic pride? Your 10 point plan which just opposes with moral indignation is not going to make it happen for what is left of the Zionist left. It is still important to do what you suggest, but unless people know what is their light at the end of the proverbial tunnel, their tenacity will wane. And it appears that that light will no longer be the 'two state' solution.
