Uri Avnery explains why the Israeli right’s interest in a “one-state” solution is thoroughly racist and reactionary:
“Ethnic cleansing can be carried out dramatically (as in this country in 1948 and in Kosovo in 1998) or in a quiet and systematic way, by dozens of sophisticated methods, as is happening now in east Jerusalem.
“But there cannot be the slightest doubt that this is the final stage of the one-state vision of the rightists. The first stage will be an effort to fill the entire country with settlements and to demolish any chance of implementing the two-state solution, which is the only realistic basis for peace.”

Freedland in the Graun is also worth reading, but he’s nowhere as near as sharp as Avnery.
