You have written the most confused posting I have ever read. Sixty two years ago, (1947), Netanyahu did not agree to two states, "but the Palestinians ... didnt agree." On 14 May 1948, under UN resolution 181, Israel declared statehood. The next day, 15 May, Jordan occupied the West Bank and Jerusalem. Netanyahu wasn't born yet, and the Palestinians had no say in the matter, one way or the other. Just in case you have never heard of it, the Israeli Gov't would sign a reliable agreement with the Palestinian National Authority, (the PA). Please find some other historical mentor for your poor children.
