This essay argues that the limitations and injustices of the Oslo agreement force a rethinking of the future of Israel/Palestine. The "separation" embodied in Oslo allows Jews to see the Israeli state as innocent and Palestinians to yearn for empowerment, but over the past hundred years a common history has been forged. The author argues that the disappointments on both sides constitute a "broken middle" that could serve as a common ground on which to build a shared future. The article ends with a plea for binationalism as the way to justice and reconciliation, arguing on historical, practical, and especially ethnic grounds.
