Dual identity of Israeli government

Israeli Deputy FM Ayalon and Palestinian PM Fayyad have canceled their press conference in New York after squabbling over whether they want “two states” or “two states for two peoples.”

Ayalon insisted on the “two peoples” formulation, which is actually too generous as it equates Palestinians to Jews. Ayalon took Fayyad’s refusal to sign the formula to mean that he was bent on having a mono-national Palestinian state and a bi-national Israel. But Israel is already a bi-national state—34% of her youth are Arabs—and the government refuses to abandon Israeli Arab enclaves to the Palestinian state.
