  1. The thing is that Judt himself admits that a binational state is pretty far up the gravity gradient and would have to be kept in place through international supervision. I don’t think either Israelis or Palestinians would want to live in a perpetual Bosnia.

    As far as I’m concerned, though, the two-state solution is not only the only viable way out of the current mess but it’s a positive moral good in itself. One doesn’t have to be a “belligerent, self-righteous, God-fearing irredentist” to believe that a Jewish and democratic state is right and just. I’d like to see Israel become the Jewish state originally envisioned by Herzl – a state at peace with its neighbors in which Arabs are equal partners – and I think there’s still some hope for that.
