    Here's a recent opinion of John Mearsheimer:

    "So what is going on here?

    "At the most basic level, Israel’s actions in Gaza are inextricably bound up with its efforts to create a Greater Israel that stretches from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

    "Despite the endless palaver about a two-state solution, the Palestinians are not going to get their own state, not least because the Netanyahu government is firmly opposed to it.

    "The prime minister and his political allies are deeply committed to making the Occupied Territories a permanent part of Israel.

    "To pull this off, the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza will be forced to live in impoverished enclaves similar to the Bantustans in white-ruled South Africa.

    "Israeli Jews understand this quite well: a recent survey found that 58 per cent of them believe Israel already practises apartheid against the Palestinians."

    A permanent underclass "living" in a permanent part of Israel without the right to vote in Israeli elections?

    Jewish State or Democracy...
