In this chapter, the author responds to the somewhat enthusiastic welcoming of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's “acceptance” of the two-state solution in June 2009 by prominent left-wing figures in Israel. According to Netanyahu, the Palestinians must recognize Israel as the Jewish national state with an undivided Jerusalem and he rejected a right of return for Palestinian refugees, insisting that settlement building in the West Bank will continue. The author focuses on the views of David Grossman and A. B. Yehoshua regarding Netanyahu's Bar-Ilan speech. He declares that he is adopting a Jewish Palestinian identity and expresses his desire for the creation of a Jewish Palestinian state that is democratic, binational, multicultural, and multigendered.
