Perhaps the One State solution was the only solution ever possible. Even if two states were established a religiously defined Jewish state could not survive in a modern, democratic world and the two states, Israel and Palestine, would be so economically and physically dependent on each other they would be one state in all but name. Perhaps the lesson for Israelis is that religiously defined states, as in a Jewish Israel, are backward, bigoted and non-democratic and there is no place or need for them in a modern world. And perhaps the lesson for Palestinians is the same lesson indigenous peoples who have been colonised all over the world have all learned, that sometimes you 'lose your country' to see a new nation born. It is inevitable that there will be a One State Solution because Israel has made it clear it will not allow Two States and the apartheid State of occupation and colonisation which now exists cannot last. To allow each side to 'save face' and to join the modern world as a secular nation then perhaps the new One State should return to its ancient name of Canaan.
