This is how Israel loses the debate. As expressed by Tareq Abbas in this article in the NYT, the logic for a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is impeccable and human. Abbas is the son of the Palestine Authority President Mahmood Abbas. It’s been a long time coming. “If you don’t want to give me independence, at least give me civil rights.” I’m about his age. If I were Palestinian, I’d think the same thing he does.
