    The article states that there is no solution acceptable to both sides. To me it is clear that this is not true. If a complete solution including refugee compensation and resettlement outside of Israel as well as a Geneva understandings type settlment on borders and Jerusalem most Palestinians and most Israelis would not reject it if they knew that indeed it will come about. The problem is that nobody believes it can come about. There is a way to make it come about. The first step is to agree to the following rules: First, obtain a "shelf agreement" or a definition of peace. (not unlike the Rice-Livni plan) The second step is to obtain an implementation plan which is guaranteed to lead to that final status agreement in staggered steps. The plan makes it highly likely that the implementation plan will be carried out and result in a stable Palestinian state with no militias. See: http://www.mideastweb.org/log/archives/00000619.htm
