A Two-state Solution Is Still Possible for Israel and the Palestinians

There’s no reason to waste more words on the necessity of the two-state solution. What’s important to stress is that this pessimism, which feeds on the feeling that we’ve missed the deadline, stems from shortsightedness and impatience.

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett’s statement that the idea of a Palestinian state is already “behind us” stems from his worldview, and perhaps also from political considerations. But it’s no accident that he said it with such confidence. His tailwind for doing so is coming, of all places, from Israel’s peace camp.
