There are no unicorns. There’s no Santa Claus. And there’s no Two State Solution.
The sooner we get that through our heads, the more likely we are to make good decisions, instead of really bad ones. Ronald Lauder, the head of the WJC, unfortunately decided to demonstrate a really bad one with a New York Times op-ed, “Israel’s Self-Inflicted Wounds”.
“Israel’s Self-Inflicted Wounds,” reads like it was written by a Peace Now member. Or a member of Obama Inc.
The first threat is the possible demise of the two-state solution. I am conservative and a Republican, and I have supported the Likud party since the 1980s. But the reality is that 13 million people live between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. And almost half of them are Palestinian.
If current trends continue, Israel will face a stark choice: Grant Palestinians full rights and cease being a Jewish state or rescind their rights and cease being a democracy.
To avoid these unacceptable outcomes, the only path forward is the two-state solution.
Okay then. How is this unicorn of a solution supposed to work?
