Self-aggrandizing but at least I didn't fix the writing.
I should add the "utopia and intentional communities" tag to every post about Israel. I've added it to most of them I think, after I started it 

The new link is to I've updated it on a few earlier posts.
I'm not asking Israel to be Utopian. I'm not asking it to allow Palestinians who were forced out (or fled) in 1948 to return to their homes. I'm not even asking it to allow full, equal citizenship to Arab Israelis, since that would require Israel no longer being a Jewish state. I'm actually pretty willing to compromise my liberalism for Israel's security and for its status as a Jewish state. What I am asking is that Israel not do things that foreclose the possibility of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, because if it is does that it will become--and I'm quoting Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak here--an "apartheid state."

The most he ever wanted was a Bantustan
