'Hysteria': Reading the Palestinian Application

By Nathaniel Berman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2011

The author describes the contradiction in Israeli responses to the Palestinian bid for statehood, arguing that they have oscillated between criticizing the Palestinian application as excessively unilateral and criticizing it as excessively U.N.-focused, i.e., multilateral. The oscillation between these contradictory criticisms suggests that they say less about the Palestinian application itself than about a deep-rooted ambivalence on the part of the critics.
