Israel has had the capacity to resolve the conflict since 1967 when its military victory gave it the chance to complete the the UN plan to partition Palestine (albiet in more favorable borders for Israel). However, that chance has been systematically squandered by successive Israeli governments in 1991, 1993-1999 and since. Israel needs to realize that the policy of these Latin American states prefigures the future. There is no alternative to the 2002 Arab Peace plan – the recognition of two states within the 1967 boundaries and a just solution to the refugee question – either Israel implements this or the international community will have to impose it.
