in response to reader comment: Necessity of Two States for Two Peoples for the Survival of Israel

Unfortunately, this theoretical plan is not being borne out in reality. I can tell you without hesitation that if a real two-state solution were presented, Israel would welcome it. The problem is that the Palestinians (and their politcal masters) are not interested in any solutions but prefer to keep the fires of hatred burning and the monies coming in. If they were interested in a solution they would have agreed to the original British partition, to the 56 offer, to the Barak at Camp David offer in 2000 giving them everything except 5 percent of the West Bank and even an offer to discuss Jerusalem.

The facts speak for themselves. Look at who benefits from peace and is tired of war vs who benefits from strife and instability.
