The left's estrangement from reality

At Z-Word, Eamonn McDonagh writes about the sentimentalism of the left in its support for the Palestinian cause:

Indeed for the progressive commentariat it is the apparent hopelessness of the Palestinian cause that makes it so appealing. The day the Palestinian leaders start to show serious signs of wanting to make a deal that’s possible to make, that’s the day the progressive commentariat will start looking for another group of exotic people to come over all misty-eyed about, in a well meaning but condescending way.
