Writing in the journal Foreign Affairs, four noted, quite mainstream scholars of U.S. policy in the Middle East–Michael Barnett, Nathan Brown, Marc Lynch, and Shibley Telhami–describe “The One-State Reality” that exists in Palestine and Israel today. The piece is meant to promote their book, The One-State Reality: What Is Israel-Palestine? I should note, the book features a collection of essays from many prominent thinkers and is worth reading.

In my latest piece for Mondoweiss, I both examine the article and look at the potential impact a piece like this one, from sources like these, could have on the policy discussion in Washington. It is especially important now as more Democrats than ever, even some on Capitol Hill, are starting to question our “special relationship” with a state that is demonstrably imposing an apartheid system on people it rules.
