“So what is in the offing? No one knows for sure. But a careful examination of reality suggests that the de facto elimination of a prospective Palestinian state will leave us with two main broad alternatives: First, the hypothetical creation of a unitary democratic state between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean where Palestinians and Jews could live together in peace as equal citizens. It is utterly inconceivable , however, that Israel would willingly agree to the emergence of such a state since this sort of entity would effectively spell the end of Zionism and put an end to Israel as a Jewish state. “
I know that resistance against an evil foreign military occupation is a legitimate right and even a sublime national duty. However, Palestinians must approach this matter of resistance with utmost discretion, because it is never enough to be right as one has to be wise as well, and wisdom has a thousand doors!
THE ENDGAME: It is either One democratic state for all or perpetual open-ended conflict
