An Interview With Benny Morris

Running Out of Solutions, an article published at Foreign Policy offers an interview with Benny Morris, the Israeli historian and icon of the left.

For decades Morris has advocated a two state solution and published work that shattered the Israeli image by claiming that the Palestinian refugee problem was caused not only by Arabs fleeing the newly created Medinat Israel, but also by methodical expulsion by the Israeli military. Now he, like many in the Israeli left, is waking up to the existential threat posed by a nuclear Iran, and the realization that many of Israel's neighbors have only one goal in mind; namely, the destruction of the Jewish state. Very interesting article for those interested in the fragmentation of the left that has taken place since 2000.
