    the so-called “two-state solution” is neither, because there already 2 states of palestine, israel is the jewish homeland in palestine, and jordan, with 78% of the land area, is the arab homeland in palestine, and has been since 1923.

    the proposal now is to create one (or two) more arab states of palestine, one for fatah, and probably a second one for hamas. since the plo was founded in 1964 specifically to “liberate” the jewish part of palestine (the only part that wasn’t already under arab occupation), it remains to be seen what two new terrorist states will “solve” remains to be seen, but “peace” isn’t the most likely outcome.

    but this is the arab style of “negotiating” – any offer on the table suddenly becomes a sine qua non precondition for further negotiations (i.e. even more concessions). never is there an end to the demands, nor any reciprocal offers.
