A letter to his Palestinian neighbors

"I learned in my journeys into your society that moderation means one thing on the Israeli side and quite another on the Palestinian side. An Israeli moderate recognizes the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as a struggle between two legitimate national narratives. A Palestinian moderate, by contrast, tends to disagree with the extremists about method, not goal: He advocates the disappearance of Israel through more gradualist means, like demographic subversion. He sees a two-state solution as an interim agreement, a step toward a one-state solution, which, of course, is nothing more than a thinly veiled code for the end of a Jewish state and the creation of a Greater Palestine."
