    There is and will be no credible future for the two-states idea until there is a real movement towards a single bi-national state. Likud and its cohorts think Palestinians will disappear or move magically. Voting by Arabs is the only real answer, voting in mass. Israeli Arabs have the population to almost take control of the Knesset. Jerusalem Arabs can control over half of the city government, voting as a block. They can both starve the money to the settlements and government paid construction for non-Jews only. And issue all the catch-up building permits for the last 40+ years. Then and only then might two-states have a credible future. Not before.
