Nu publicerar The Atlantic en intervju med honom, genomförd bara en månad innan han gick bort. Den handlar om staten Israel och dess framtid i Mellanöstern. Det är en knivskarp och realitetsbaserad analys som borde läsas noga.
Can you see or understand why Israelis are afraid?Läs hela!
Yes, but only in the sense that someone who has been brought up to fear and hate his neighbors will have good reason to be frightened at the thought of living in the same house with them. Israelis have created a generation of young Palestinians who hate them and will never forgive them and that does make a real problem for any future agreement, single- or two-state.
But Israel should be much, much more afraid of the Israel it's creating for itself: a semi-democratic, demagogic, far-right warrior state dominated by racist Russians and crazed rabbis. In this perspective, an internationally policed and guaranteed federal state of Israel, with the same rights and resources for Jews and Arabs, looks a lot less frightening to me.
