    the symptoms, and I agree that the cause is the Occupation, but it looks like JVP and the "Young Jewish Declaration" are terminally ill, at least when it comes to Israel. And I have to admit that this statement seems to contradict earlier statements Burton made trying to stake out a ground that supported a two state solution (and thus Israel's right to exist in any form) and a position that basically calls for replacing Israel with Palestine, which, if I am not mistaken, is the JVP's and the Declaration's position. This is not the position of J Street, however. So it looks like there are more positions in the world for American Jews besides gates and walls, toda le-El. One thing is for sure though, there won't be any solution until the so-called Left can chew gum and walk at the same time and remember that unless things change the position most of us all will be in is on the unemployment line.
