I read lots of one-state literature and that's news to me.
Emotionally, I am for every single Russian immigrant from the 1970s on
-- starting with that pig Avigdor Lieberman -- going back to where
they came from. And the same for every single US-born Jew. As for
those born in Europe before Hitler, and those from North Africa and
the Middle East, that's more complicated.
But politically, my position is that every single one of them could
stay, and Palestine (river to sea) would have the resources for them
and every single Palestinian refugee around the world -- IF AND ONLY
IF all of the capitalists among the above were expropriated. And in
order to sustain the fledgling socialist state if Egypt and/or one or
two other big Arab states joined them.
As for the liberal worries about those mean Arabs suppressing the
Hebrew "culture" -- fuck that. It was a totally artificial creation,
and they should all be forced to learn Arabic, and the Jews-only
schools dismantled.
