Some interesting and nuanced thoughts from Jeff Weintraub, from a few years' back.

A couple of words about my little series of posts Debating Israel-Palestine, here and here. I'm trying something new - a series of posts to lay out a complicated set of ideas and arguments. Apart from small fact-hecks or clarifications, I hope to put off a full debate on this until I'm done. Maybe that won't work within a blogazine's pace and dynamic. But to get to what I want to say requires a lot of qualification, specifics and developed argument. I hope to end the thing at four longish posts in total. So patience please until I'm done (with any luck given the elections, within the next week).
