    The current environment is more favorable to secure the terms and officiate the charter of a two state solution now rather than postponing the issue into the future. First take a while to consider this... then I ask to anyone living within Israeli boarders, are you willing to bet that I am wrong? If so, what evidence do you have and what terms would you be willing to put in jeopardy to take such a bet? Now is an unusually conducive time but with so many factors affecting the environment in the Middle East, popular sentiments can change overnight and torrents of anger can be unleashed in unpredictable directions. A wrong turn could take the region down a disastrous path. It will require a solution that is embraced by the region and supported by the world - no trivial challenge. It always begins with a conversation and usually the one who starts the conversation is in a better position to gain the most from it. May our collective wisdom guide us.
