Should The Palestinians Accept A Jewish State? A Constructive Debate Between Israeli and Palestinian writers.

In Haaretz, my fruitful exchange/debate with Palestinian writer Aziz Abu Sarah on whether the Palestinians should accept Israel as a Jewish state. Paradoxically this is one of my most conservative (I side with Netanyahu) and radical (see conclusion) articles ever. I also believe that this exchange is one of the most original and creative surrounding this topic. I urge you to pass this to friends, repost on your blogs and share on your facebook pages.

Shalomn! I tried to reach your blog and it always does not work. Is it my services' problem or your temporarily suspend it?

I would like to say I partially support your view regarding this issue and have some intuition feeling of accepting a Jewish state is just a matter of time. Both sides made some mistakes at the initial stage but we have to admit Arabic countries made a huge mistake that they thought they would come back one day so they encouraged Palestinian to leave, which of course became a century diaspora and a hot issue for the current conflicts. Well, most of my friends are Zionist and I understand your points here but could we persuade Palestinian that Jewish have right to live in this land?

P.s, I also applied for this program last year but did not get admission. How is study here? I am preparing for reapply this year. Hope we can have more communications and I like your articles in Haaretz.
