A week after Netanyahu easily won another election, things don’t look all that different in Israel-Palestine. But one thing has changed: all those who told themselves Israel was seeking a two-state solution this entire time now have some difficult and painful questions to ask themselves.

Our guest this week, +972 Magazine co-founder and contributing editor Lisa Goldman, doesn’t think most people have the courage to look that reality in the eyes.

“They’re going to come up against a pretty thick wall pretty soon. How can we be a democracy if half the people living now permanently under Israeli control can’t vote. That’s going to be pretty difficult to explain to the outside world.”

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.
