What killed the two-state solution?

“The international community stood by and patted themselves on the back while Israel expanded the settlements and instituted a system of racial separation with exclusive rights for Jews. And this was called the peace process. Case closed. The question becomes not whether the two-state solution was ever possible, but whether it was ever preferable.” - Adam Horowitz

      Ed, thanks so much for your coverage of Iran.

      Something I will write about more in the next few days is the silence of the progressive outlets during the past few weeks. Naomi Klein didn’t even utter a word. James Petras made me wish he hadn’t uttered a word for all the profanity he wrote.

      They cry foul at the military-industrial complex in the U.S, but when the same disease takes over Iran, they support it or remain silent.

      Thank you.

      I agree with you on this. In fact, I just quit posting on a message board exactly because of such an attitude from so-called ‘progressives’. It was simply a waste of precious time that I could use more wisely elsewhere.

      Justin Raimondo and Chris Floyd have sensed the fundamental human element in the struggle pitching the protesters against their now illegitimate government. It is a struggle that is being fought on the streets of Tehran and in adjoining cities, and yet it is one that we could easily be fighting ourselves. It touches all of us. Whether we would have the bravery and courage of the Iranians is another matter.

      As Richard Seymour wrote on his blog:

      The key here is universality: these protesters are no different from those who have been beaten or killed in Genoa, in London, in LA, in Athens, and everywhere that the state is challenged by a democratic movement and responds in this way.

      I look forward to your piece on this important issue. Take care!

      Hi you,
      A persian blogger had posted a little note to his Arab friends, he wished he knew how to speak to them in Arabic:

      Thank you! You are very kind.

      It’s really not much but I figure every little helps.
