    Israel clearly will never settle for a two-state solution. It is clear to anyone who is not insane that Israel will NEVER give up what the Settlers have taken, nor will it ever stop allowing the Settlers to take more. Thus Israel has made it absolutely clear that Israelis want to rid Judea and Samaria of Arabs. Moreover the current government has made it clear to the UN that it wants to be rid of all Arabs in Israel. So why does Israel find it impossible to admit to itself what it wants? Why does Haaretz refuse to let this question be asked? One cannot attack unfairly someone for doing what they do, for defending what they defend, and for showing that they fail to live up to their own standards. Israel is unwilling to admit it seeks an ethnically pure Greater Israel, even though it votes for those parties which have that goal. If Israel did not want war instead of peace, a third infitada instead of settlement expansion, then why did it elect the government it has? If it does not want another round of terrorism and horror, why has it rejected the idea of a two state solution?
