The Two State Solution Is Wrongheaded

This evening, I am studying the partition of Pakistan from India in 1947.  Pakistan was designed by the British to provide a separate home to the Muslim.  These line drawers set the stage for a religious cleansing of Sikhs from Muslims and Hindus from the rest.  People were slaughtered, as property lines were put in place and made known.

The state is the central problem, the most violent invention on earth.  The solution, I am sure, in the matter of Israel and Palestine is not a two state solution;  rather, it is a no state solution.

It is so clear.

Swear not/ Do not take oaths (ends the state and all its systems of violence).
