Pretty amazing that a limited "Rules Based Order" would support such a far-right ultra-nationalist government to the hilt. Oh wait, it's not surprising at all. Ultranationalism, despotism or far-right shenanigans are to be excused as long as "we" can agree on the bigger picture.
Even if the protests intensify soon—another outcome of IDI’s poll—and the country heads for elections sometime during 2024, there is a huge question mark in regard to the structural changes in Israeli political thinking and public support for unpopular moves. That includes support for the two-state solution—a consensus shared around the world, but a big no-no for almost all Israeli politicians from the extreme right to the center. To ignite a process that will allow for a realistic discussion about “the day after” in Gaza and the need to implement the two states solution, Israeli society first needs to acknowledge that the policies that Netanyahu has advanced since 2009 have failed, and to start searching for alternatives. October 7, 2023 might be the beginning of the end of Netanyahu’s era, but it will be truly finished only when his political legacy of maintaining the status quo is gone.
Centrists, in particular, love the status quo.



C'mon Richard. You are being disingenuous, Hamas themselves are not in favour of a two-state solution.  
Me? I'm in favour of it. But I kind of suspect my voice doesn't count for much.
On that note, what's your standpoint? Eradication of the state of Israel à la Hamas or a two-state solution?

Feudal Russia and Hamas, ahumm... I see where your intellectual horizon is taking you (admit it - you gained that view from warhawk training, US, Nato, or EU based) without any impartial context at all, and the higher your "social organization" will be taking the world, the more people will die from hunger, I'm sure, as Marx wasn't calculating with global capitalism in mind. Instead you masquerade as intellectually open but your heart remains closed and dark.



I think we are all completely disgusted by the misery of war. Let's just say we share that in common.  

Let's get back to Marx. Marx was most definitely thinking of global capitalism. In fact that was his whole point (and his weakness - like most 19C thinkers he thought he had discovered a natural law, like  the theory of evolution).

Full disclosure: I am not a Marxist but as a student I identified myself as a Marxist and was (temporarily) a member of a Trotskyist progressive movement. I studied political science and have read a fair bit of Marxist writing.  I may not be the most knowledgeable here at RP on the subject but am very willing to discuss it with you, if you are up for an honest discussion on the subject.
