If Israeli settlements were the primary obstacle to peace between Israel and its neighbors, there would have been an agreement between 1948 and 1967, when Egypt and Jordan occupied Gaza and the West Bank, or in the years following, when Arabs were boycotting talks with Israel while Israel was seeking peace. Israelis, including their new prime minister, would welcome a two-state solution, with a Jewish state and an Arab state living in peace and security alongside each other. But at a time when even media-darling Arab "moderates" insist on the "right" of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Arabs to move to Israel, Israel's more than one million Arab citizens insist that their current homes remain on the Jewish side of any final border - not in "Palestine" - and terror continues to fall from the skies from settlement-free Gaza. It is clear that only Israel's Jews support an authentic "two states for two peoples" solution to the conflict.
