They're still not discussed. Without resolving them, "no solution, one or two-states, will succeed."
Palestinians and Israelis live on the same land. Their populations are roughly equal. Israelis are heading for minority status. Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu, and others call Israeli policy apartheid.
Conflict resolution is impossible. Israeli recognition of Palestinian self-determination "remains a mirage." Both sides "don't have another twenty years to waste."
Post editors suppress what readers need to know. They want Palestinians to resolve settlement issues "at the negotiating table." Saying so ignores reality. Israel doesn't negotiate. It demands.
Increased settlement construction won't prevent a two-state solution, Post editors claim.
The only viable resolution is one state comprised of Israel and the Territories. Nothing else will work.
A single state for Jews and Palestinians in theory at least resolves most intractable issues.
The alternative assures occupation, continued conflict, land theft, dispossessions, inequality, a permanent non-Jewish underclass, instability, and avoidance of within reach justice.
