    I'd like to see Kadima and Labor put up a motion to the Knesset a) Accepting that a 2-state solution is desirable and inevitable and should happen within 2 years b) Agreeing that E J'sem must be the future Pal capital c) Recognising that Israel must take steps to recompense and asist in the rehousing of Pal refugees It would have an automatic 55 votes in favour from these two, Meretz and the Arab parties. It would put Yisrael Beiteinu on the spot - they claimed in their manifesto that they support a separate Pal state, but Lieberman keeps adjusting that with his 'not now., 'not for 20 years' populist spiel. And it would put Likud in a real bind. Bibi has claimed he supports a 2-state solution but all his actions suggest the reverse. Could Likud vote against such a motion and Bibi still pretend to Obama that he was on-script? It would be informative for the rest of the international community to see the veracity of Bibi, Likud and Lieberman when glib words come to real actions.
