Last week I
raised concerns about Dennis
Ross's new 14-point peace plan, which would gut the very notion of the two-state solution. Ross's approach is
the most prominent manifestation of a growing trend toward the acceptance of a seductive new logic that has emerged
in the context of the current Israeli-Palestinian deadlock. According to this line of thought, breaking the
deadlock requires an approach that falls comfortably within Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's
pro-"Greater Israel" political comfort zone, but that can somehow still be marketed as "pro-peace."
