    Arens is one of the leading lights amongst some on the right - even the extreme right - calling for a single bi-national state. On the surface it sounds like the most democratic and equitable solution to the conflict if it remains impossible to have two states in the region. These single-statists do not all agree on how it would work but one common thread runs through their reasoning - the country would remain primarily Jewish in its ethos and would not include the Palestinians in Gaza. Or in other words this "new" state would still discriminate in favour of Jews. As Uri Avnery wrote in an article in July, 2010 - In Roman Polanski’s movie “Rosemary’s Baby”, a nice young woman gives birth to a nice baby, which turns out to be the son of Satan. The attractive leftist vision of the one-state solution may grow up into a rightist monster.
