Alterman on Peretz


Very much worth reading, of course.

Meanwhile, my favorite bit from the recent New York profile — even better than when Peretz claims that Obama lacks his sense of complexity and nuance in foreign policy — which I’d like to think is dry wit:

For Israel, Peretz believes in a two-state solution. But this is complicated by the fact that he also believes, and says loudly and repeatedly, that Palestine is not a real state—“an utter fiction,” a “fraudulent nation-state.”

So, if I understand correctly, except for the fact that Peretz opposes a Palestinian state in both theory and practice he favors a two-state solution.
