As normalization sweeps the Gulf, Israeli anti-occupation activists face a new fight for relevance, influence and partnerships in an unfamiliar, often dissonant environment. It won’t be easy
Two state solution
Rabin was no saint, but he changed, and was gunned down for it. When the U.S. left refuses to remember his peacemaking with the Palestinians, they hand victory to Netanyahu and the Israeli right
The Israeli left shrunk to a tiny marginalized shadow when, shunning all others, it went down an ideologically pure rabbit-hole. When U.S. Jewish progressives urge AOC to shun Rabin, they’re following the same forlorn path
Earlier this month, the Palestinians failed to persuade the Arab League to condemn nations breaking ranks and normalizing relations with Israel
Israel's treaties with the UAE and Bahrain lack any explicit recognition of Israel as a Jewish state or endorsement of the two-state solution, but rather says parties will be 'guided in their relations' by UN resolutions and international law
In first comments since deal, Riyadh's top diplomat hints at kingdom's opposition to normalizing ties without an agreement on the Palestinian issue
In an interview with Haaretz, the enfant terrible of U.S. Jewry says the ethos of Black Lives Matter will change the discourse on Israel-Palestine – and he even has a tip for Biden about Netanyahu
When I was President, Hugo Chávez called Colombia 'the Israel of Latin America.' I took it as a compliment. But Israel’s founding vision is under attack from a hyper-nationalist government openly scorning human rights and international law
In America, Peter Beinart has been both praised and flayed alive for his one state preaching; in illiberal Israel, his ideas have little traction. But rather than trying to convince Israeli Jews, Beinart prefers to condemn them
His argument for a non-Jewish one state solution may be flawed but nonetheless exposes deepening angst of two-state supporters
Liberal Zionists are belatedly waking up to the only just alternative: a single state, shared by Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs. But if Israeli Jews won’t endorse a one state solution, will they have to be dragged unwillingly into it?
I’d love to live in Beinart’s peaceful hyphenated state of 'Israel-Palestine.' But I can’t vote for it. No one actually living here is proposing it. And that’s exactly where his thesis unravels
It's a pipe-dream to expect that annexation will trigger a wholesale disengagement of Jewish Diaspora communities from an Israel running towards formalizing its undemocratic occupation
The only international response to the brazen Trump-Israel plan must be concrete action to stop Israel's West Bank annexation, and full-fledged apartheid
Israel’s leaders are sacrificing democracy and human rights on the altar of ethno-nationalism. And all those U.S. Jewish groups claiming to back a two state solution have suddenly lost their voice?
At the UN today, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will say: Give peace, not apartheid, a chance. And he will offer a serious proposal to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Mideast
Trump's one-sided 'vision' to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a serenade to Evangelicals and the Adelsons, and ratifies America's withdrawal from the Middle East. But in it, there remains a thin thread of hope
Last Palestinian envoy to DC: The Trump team endorsing a one-state Greater Israel isn’t surprising: they're diehard settlement supporters But their flagrant attack on international law have repercussions far beyond Palestine
Trump’s 'peace plan' endorses the Netanyahu doctrine that, for Israel, might is always right. Palestinians must refuse to engage with these fictional negotiations, with this U.S. administration – and with a bullying Israel
Even when Democrats hold the White House again, they won't be able to reverse the core terms of Trump's Middle East peace plan, and U.S. leverage over Israel will have diminished. This is why
The resolution, which passed 226-188, emphasizes need for two-state solution, opposition of steps to hinder peace 'including unilateral annexation of territory'
The EU has a new foreign policy chief. This is why he must resist pressure to deepen Europe's relationship with Israel any further
Spain's Josep Borrell says that he would not sabotage EU-Israel trade agreements to promote this solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
