The two Palestinian uprisings have brought about an ideological shift in Israel’s view of the solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The time has ripened for an open debate about ending the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Occupied Territories. The debate has limited discursive boundaries, set up by the catch phrase “a Jewish and democratic state”. This article discusses some points of view within this discourse and exemplifies those that remain outside it.
