I was listening to a twenty-eight year Binyamin Netanyahu (or Ben Nitay as he was called then) debate and about half-way, Bibi makes a rather remarkable and startling statement suggesting Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip could potentially be given Israeli citizenship and incorporated into Israel proper. Lord knows, I am certainly not the same woman I was at 28, so why should Bibi be? Although, given his refusal to consider a ‘two-state’ solution, his rejection of his own right-wing in Likud and his outrageous wooing of both Labour and Kadima, I am left wondering if this is ultimately Bibi’s end game.
Go ahead and pooh-pooh the mere suggestion but don’t say you weren’t warned.
H/T: To A Soldier’s Mother. It’s a great blog piece and can be read own and which has absolutely nothing in common with what I have written.
