They Say, We Say: Why can't Israel keep all the land?
We know that pro-Israel does not mean blindly supporting policies that are irrational, reckless, and counter-productive. Pro-Israel means supporting policies that are consistent with Israel's interests and promote its survival as a Jewish, democratic state.
You've heard the arguments of the religious and political right-wing, and so have we. They've had their say. Now, we'll have ours.

Is Peace Possible?
Why can't Israel keep all the land?
Some today are arguing in favor of a one-state "solution." Anti-Zionists and post-Zionists envision a Palestinian-majority, secular, democratic state. At the other end of the political spectrum, some Israeli right-wingers envision Israel annexing the West Bank, using various ploys to disenfranchise its Palestinian residents and forcing Egypt to take over responsibility for Gaza.
Both visions are illusions. No Israeli government will simply dissolve the State of Israel. And Israel will never be able to justify, even to its closest allies, formalizing its own version of apartheid in the West Bank while turning Palestinians in Gaza into a futureless, stateless people imprisoned on the edge of the Sinai.
