As usual, WL provides a space where discussion can take place, rather than a shouting match. For which we can all be grateful. I haven't read the book, but I'd like to bring to your attention the closing of a site - BitterLemons - where for 10 years the quality of debate was outstanding. http://www.bitterlemons-international.org/index1.php
Even the short notes on why they are closing are impressive.
One thing I have noticed, even here on WL, is that the following question is very powerfully and very loudly not asked: Why do people become Zionists? In 2012, why should any young thinking westerner want to go and live in Israel? And take their family with them, or start up a family there?
I think I know at least part of the answer, but that part, is at is core, a bit secret and probably inherently quite offensive.
On a completely different topic, as a former Glaswegian with on-going family and historical close links to Glasgow, and a great love of Scotland, I think the AWL reasoning on the referendum (for) and independence (against)is spot on. Great stuff, and thanks for the clarity in explaining the reasoning.
