In the course of the interview Yehoshua, a man of the left, robustly disputes Franks's contention that Gaza is effectively still occupied, and spiritedly argues Israel's right to defend itself against Hamas terror.
"How long do you think Israel has got to continue its existence as a Jewish State?" asks Franks. "If there isn't a Two State Solution."
The response is long and interesting ...
"Israel is my identity," says Yehoshua, "... I cannot permit myself to be pessimistic ..."
His final comment:
"This is what I’m doing with my friends in Israel, to work very hard that our Israeli state, the Jewish totality state will be functioning in peace with its environment, and I would say flourishing in the future. And recognized by you.”
