If Prof. Gavison promotes the "2 states for 2 peoples" idea, she is returning to the basis for the Partition resolution of 1947. OK, fair enough, but she should do so explicitly. And, if the principle of the Partition resolution was and remains correct, then how can you justify the ethnic cleansing of the inhabitants of the designated Arab state? Put differently, if you are reiterating Partition, you have to reiterate the Partition borders. This guarantees the right of return of the vast majority of the 1947-48 refugees. Then, you also have the refugees of June 1967. The problem with Prof. Gavison's ostensibly even-handed and principled argument is that it attempts to whitewash the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed against the Palestinians, and to legitimize and render permanent the borders achieved by ethnic cleansing. This is neither principled nor even-handed, nor pragmatic.
