Two states or no state: make your mind up time.

The video below is from J Street, "the political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans". Or as Bonni the Holocaust denier calls them, "left-wing, self-hating Jews". Bonni reckons they don't tell you that the two-state solution will involve Israel's pre-1967 borders (or as the rest of the world calls them, Israel's borders). It's OK, Bonni, Israel will surely be allowed to keep all it own territory: it's only the stolen stuff it has to give up.

Seriously, though, I couldn't put it better myself. Unless a two-state solution is agreed, there will be a one-state solution, and the one state won't be Israel. It must be really easy sitting in Wisconsin or Ohio or Texas shouting "There's no such place as Palestine" when you never actually have to live with the consequences.
