The one-state solution

I wrote below (and included in the video) about George Galloway's discussion of the one-state solution for Palestine and Israel, the democratic, secular Palestine (or Israel-Palestine or Palestine-Israel or whatever it might be called). Today I came across this wonderful graphic on the subject (graphic credit), which dramatically illustrates how the one-state solution is being reborn out of the death of the two-state (or, "two-state") solution:

The One-State Solution

The article on CommonDreams is an interesting one. For example I did not know this:

That goal was advocated most eloquently in the 1930s and early 1940s by Judah Magnes, Martin Buber, and other intellectuals at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Curiously, however, the article makes no mention of someone else I mentioned recently, Ali Abunimah, the founder of the website Electronic Intifada, and the author of what I expect is the newest and most important book on the subject of the one-state solution, One Country, a book I'm in the middle of reading.
