Failure of a 'two state solution'

Reader comment on item: Why Oslo's Hopes Turned to Dust

Submitted by Fred S (United States), Sep 11, 2003 at 03:13

In retrospect, Oslo's failure was doomed for other reasons, as well. The Palestinians also believed in destroying Israel by flooding Israel with Arabs. Israel's big mistake was not insisting on 1. abolishing any 'right-of-return' for arabs into Israel and 2. dismantling of arab refugee camps in the areas given back to them. That should have been demanded before the ink was dry.

Whenever Palestinians talk of a 'two state solution', they mean a majority arab state of Israel alongside an exclusively arab state of Palestine. The world will continued to be fooled by their duplicity.
