    that a two-state solution is essential.

    •  more evidence (6+ / 0-)

      that a two-state solution is impossible.  

      And remember folks, we already have the one-state solution.  It's called Israel.

      •  Only those who (0+ / 0-)

        oppose a two-state solution claim it is impossible.

        Something the extremists on both sides have in common.

        Funny how that works . . .

          Damn right a two state solution is impossible.  There's no way Nutty Yahoo and his even nuttier cohorts will allow a fully sovereign Palestinian state on their border.

          Sure, there are plenty who don't want a two-state solution, so they deny it's possibility.

          But you could be very reasonable and patient indeed, and still lose all hope, after so many years of frustration and thwarted progress.

          I believe there will eventually be a two-state solution. Realistically, there are huge obstacles (e.g. the two sides have almost irreconcilable views on the right of return - and on many issues) in the way.

            to achieve. And expressions of frustration about the lack of progress and the obstacles are more than understandable.

            But any other "resolution" is a wet dream of those who don't believe in it, and never have.

            And those claiming it is "impossible" typically come from those who have an agenda to see it not happen.  The lack of honesty in that regard is rather blatant.

              many of those who claim it's "impossible".

              I have found, the longer I look at I/P, the warier I become of guessing what others really think. Many, whom I once thought were liars, turned out to be firmly entrenched in world-views remote from my own.

              Otherwise agree with your comment.
