A lot of folks slammed Jimmy Carter for using the word — but when Israel Prime Minister Ehud Ohlmert says the same thing, it just makes the problem in Israel more tangible and real.
This from the BBC:
Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said failure to negotiate a two-state solution with the Palestinians would spell the end of the State of Israel.
He warned of a “South African-style struggle” which Israel would lose if a Palestinian state was not established.
I hope to ask Deputy Prime Minister Haim Ramon a bit more about this tonight.
