The left-wing divide on Israel-Palestine is going to be a problem for Joe Biden
Israeli demography is also at odds with the Democratic left. Israeli youth largely identify with the right, and the ultra-right-wing Haredi population is growing at more than twice the rate as the rest of Israel. This suggests the Israeli right will only grow stronger in the future. There are also nearly 500,000 Jews living in the West Bank and another 215,000 living in East Jerusalem, which Palestinians want as the capital for their state. No Jewish government, left or right, will remove roughly 10 percent of its population to facilitate the peace settlement favored by Palestinians and the Democratic Party’s left.
