    It is important to remember the historical context here. On SEVEN previous occasions, the Israelis have agreed to a two-state solution with virtually all the West Bank & Gaza going to the Palestinians and a fair treatment of Jerusalem for both parties. In all SEVEN instances--the most famous being the Camp David proposal that President Bill Clinton and Ambassador Dennis Ross negotiated in 2000--ISRAEL AGREED TO A TWO-STATE SOLUTION AND THE PALESTINIANS SAID NO. The dates of these SEVEN potential two-state solutions that Israel agreed to and the Palestinians rejected follow: 1938--British Peel Commission recommending two states--Israel said yes; Arab states and Palestinians said NO!!! 1947--UN Resolution creating two states--Israel was established; Arab states and Palestinians said NO!!! Six Arab states invaded Israel instead of accepting a two-state solution. 1949-1967--Anytime during this period, Egypt and Jordan could have established a Palestinian state on the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. They chose NOT to do so. 1967--Israel said they would give back the captured territories right after the Six-Day War. Arabs at Khartoum said NO!!! 2000--Camp David Proposal by US--Israel said yes; Yassir Arafat said NO!! 2001--Taba Proposal--Israel said yes; Arafat said NO!! 2008--Israel offered a two state solution similar to the Clinton/Ross proposal; Abbas said NO!!!
