As the settlements expand, and expand they do, the chances of a two state solution diminish. I have it in mind--and please correct me if I am wrong--that Israel wants to remain a Jewish dominated state, and that is hard to do if there is only one state because of all those Palestinians hanging around (and having to be controlled by the dominant Jewish culture). With a two state solution, Israel could push all those "undesirables" into the second (Palestinian) state. Of course that second state wouldn't have to be too plush--just a place to house the arabs after all. So why does israel do so much to undermine the two state solution? Any explanations?
