    "The majority of Israelis and world Jewry, both religious and secular, have advocated in the recent past for a resolution to the Middle East conflict, with two states side-by-side. However, there is a real problem when the Israeli government does not clearly articulate this goal or vision with the established boundaries." (Smadar) Smadar, the shift in Israeli opinion away from a two-state solution began long before the recent civil war in Gaza, your suggested cause. The murder of Rabin served its purpose of putting Israeli politicians in great fear of the settler movement. Likud then used this fear to increase the rate of settlement activiy in the Territories, intentionally undermining public confidence in the notion that a two-state solution was possible. Sharon's provocative visit to the Temple Mount, following on the collapse of Camp David II, instigated the Second Intifada in October 2000. This brought on the waves of suicide bombing which killed the peace-seeking Left.
