    Dear Dan It is time you expand your definition of reality to include what is right for both parties in this conflict and not just one side i.e. Israel. For decades Israel has talked about the 2 state solution but has done everything in its power to prevent it by the illegal settlement construction. Over 1/2 million people live in these settlements and the famous words of "creating facts on the ground" is a done deal. Well what now? Continue with the military occupation of a people , say you want two states and continue with the settlements? You can't have your cake and eat it. Time is not on Israel's side. The vote of 80 million Egyptians is going to be for the people of Palestine and not Israel just in case you were wondering.
