Events on the ground do seem to be taking Isra-Stine further from a two-state solution, don't they? Couldn't it be useful to float the idea of a long-term goal of an EU-style federation in which both sides retain their national character and the federal administration is tasked with guaranteeing the basic freedoms - freedom of religion, press, speech, due process, and equal protection - of all citizens? This could be phased in over the course of a decade or so, with progress milestones to be achieved in the interim. On the easy side, it would make evacuating the WB settlements unnecessary, and open all of Israel to Palestinian citizens. On the hard side, the Israeli government would have to be convinced to give up some authority, while the Pals would have to formally accept guaranteeing those freedoms (which Hamas will never accept). But the end game of one peaceful state seems preferable to two hostile ones, No?
