A Way Out for Bibi

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel

Submitted by Edward Rosenblatt (United States), Jun 11, 2009 at 11:57

it seems to me that Bibi can escape all the pressure to approve of a two state solution by making the following statement: "I will agree that there should be a separate state for the Palestinian people the same day that Abbas recognizes Israel as the state for the Jewish people."

Such a position would have the following benefits: 1. Since Abbas will never give such recognition, Bibi will never have to support a Palestinian state, and 2. It will immediately shift the pressure for action from Bibi to Abbas.

Does anyone think such a statement would not be a win-win for Bibi?
