    It is very sad that the Israeli Government is in a sort of self righteous denial about ever reaching a two - state solution which is really the only game in town. The moratorium on settlements has ceased and it seems that new settlements are about to be built in order to sound the death knell on the two-state solution. Let us be realistic. One cannot build settlements in territories occupied in the 1967 Six Day War if the intention is to destroy them in order that a Palestinian State can be established. Even the rhetoric coming from Netanyahu's right wing coalition does not give us any reason to believe that there will ever be an independent Palestinian state. It is about time that we cease to pull the wool over our eyes and realize that the only viable areas for a Palestinian state is in the West Bank with necessary border adjustments more or less according to the pre1967 Six Day War borders. Jerusalem by its location should be a free city and the capital of both Israel and Palestine.
