I am struck by the many comments that the plan is not realistic. Is a 100 more years of continued conflict a pre-ordained reality? Is thousands of more deaths a preordained reality? Is the ongoing waste of resources a preordained reality? Is the lack of vision, leadership, and courage a preordained reality? However imperfect this plan may be in its essense it meets the primary standards that every other attempt at mediation has arrived at...two states for two people within boundaries similar if not exactly to the pre 1967 boundaries and full normalization of relations. Difficult...maybe even, sadly, not likely...but unrealistic...the only thing more insane then that statement is the mindless continuation of this battle because vision, leadership, and courage, is lacking on both sides. And that..is not preordained, just the present reality!
