    ...they will fall back on the two states. I base my reasoning on the fact that according to all indicators (since Denis Ross decided that he needs to spend more time with his family) the US and Europe plan to claw back many of the illegal expropriations and regulations that Israel has imposed on the Palestinians, and will generally insure that the Palestinian economic and social conditions are improved sufficiently to forestall a PA implosion. But to reach such a threshold, the improvements have to be made within the Israeli economy. The Palestinian economy cannot be invigorated as a separate economy; any invigoration has to be within the Israeli framework, in other words they would be integrated into the Israeli economy. When Israel’s far right realize where that is taking them, they will become the staunchest and most ardent supporters of the two state solution.

In 1969, veterans of the Haganah, Irgun and WWII were asked to help defend the northern communities. The media described a giant success, but archives show they were mostly asked to help with the harvest.
