A small band of left-wingers refuses to acknowledge that there is an actual debate going on, so instead they delegitimize those who they suspect of disagreeing with them. After running away from the debate and the fact that just about everyone agrees that, sooner or later, the Palestinians have got to pull it together to form a mature state that has as a raison-d'etre something other than being a launching pad for erasing Israel from the map -- they proceed to call those who ask the question jackbooted fascists, or silences of debate, or cast themselves in the role of whimpering victims. Who is really trying to shut down discussion? Who is really refusing to engage here?
