1/7/21 Kalmen Barkin on Israeli Settlements and Netanyahu’s Political Future

Kalmen Barkin discusses the deplorable situation of Palestinians in Israel today, a people whose lands and rights are being slowly taken away from them by the Israeli government, while the delusive promise of a two-state solution vanishes along with them. Barkin believes Netanyahu may be in political (as well as legal) trouble these days, though he has been able to survive nearly every challenge to his regime thus far. Even if Netanyahu is replaced by another prime minister, it is unlikely that the project of expanding settlements further and further into Palestinian territory will ever be undone now that it has gotten this far along. The only hope for the Palestinians, it seems, is to gain equal rights as full citizens of the emerging single Jewish nation state.
