Not once did Mr. Netanyahu utter the words "Two state solution" since his speech at Bar Ilan university over a year ago. He uttered those words against his will and his ideology. He still believes in greater Israel and is smart enough to utter the right words at the right time to avoid international pressure against the continued colonization of the West Bank. By the end of the first year of negotiations, the Americans will be geared for the 2012 elections, Netanyahu can breath a sigh of relief knowing that there will be no American pressure exerted upon him. He will wish for a new resident in the White House that goes by the name Palin or any republican that shares her ideology. Where does Hamas fit? Are they going to be discussing 2 state solution? 3 state solution? or no state solution? The fact is, there is not going to be a solution that satisfies the minimum requirements of either party. A solution must be imposed based on already agreed upon international resolutions, basically 242 and 338. In the mean time, both parties will be treading water and telling us just how close they are to achieving a final settlement right before the power keg goes "Poof".
