To Khalid, and anyone else opposed to Israel. I cant say it better than Prof. Alan Dershowitz in his book "The Case for Israel" - please read it with an open mind! The 2 state solution has been offered 3 times, and rejected each time. The Peel Commision in 1937. The U.N in 1948. Barak offered Arafat 95% of the West Bank and all of Gaza, and to share Jerusalem, as well as 30 Billion US$ in compensation to the "refugees". Arafat refused, because the ultimate recognition of a Jewish state by him would render him as a traitor in Arab eyes. Even Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia said that Arafat's refusal was a crime against the Palestinians! Then Arafat started what he knew best - more violence.
