My old editor and long-time friend, Joel Schalit, sent this piece around today. It was published on May 18, 2013, and, despite a few things that went off in different directions and some that were simply overtaken by events as they unfolded, I think it has held up remarkably well.

It looks at the inherent paradox of a just solution to the occupation and a state of Israel that is the nation-state of the Jewish people, not of its citizens. It does not rule out a solution that involves two states, but it does demonstrate that the two-state solution as envisioned in the Oslo process was rightly dead and buried, even by that time.

I encourage you to read it, and please feel free to comment here or send me feedback.
