What Does a Jew Want?

This chapter considers a manifesto, anchored on binationalism, as a solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. After 100 years of conflict, there is no end in sight to the war between Israel and Palestine; the only visible change in the Middle East is deterioration. The small piece of land containing the names Israel and Palestine has become an intense critical mass containing all the tensions between East and West, between North and South, between religions, and between religious and secular thought. In the symbolic realm relations are much more complex: they are not about the balance of power, financial profit, or control of land, water, and natural resources. In this realm one also has to consider overt and covert theological structures. This chapter argues that binationalism is the only living alternative to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, “perhaps the only possibility for a new place, a new beginning and a new language, the only possibility for Israel–Palestine, for the Middle East, and maybe for the entire world”.
