This book has a lot of useful history but it is wrecked completely by its lame and cowardly conclusion that will look the other way in the end about the future.
Judis clearly does not favor the disestablishment of Israel today, for he goes on to argue that “the moral balance in Palestine and the case for a Jewish state” changed after that state became a fait accompli. As for how the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can be resolved today, Judis does not argue for the replacement of Israel by a single binational state, but supports the standard international consensus two-state solution, the only one that in his view (and mine) is morally justifiable and has any chance of being implemented.
Israel was a tragic and monumental blunder, one that will end by destroying American civilization. We cannot simply indulge the inevitable, we must move to undo the mistake. The violation of religious and political equality must be corrected by politics//diplomacy, war, or conquest. Radical? Look at the inevitable conflict that cannot conclude with any false compromise.
There are many ways to do that, however difficult at first. But in the end the simplest resolution is to merge Israel into a larger state of united republics, viz. Israel, Gaza, West Bank, and why not Jordan, Lebanon.
We need to look to the future which cannot support forever a ‘jewish’ state.
