Palestine: One or Two State Solution


Only one state is possible now.

by Stephen Lendman

Opinions vary. Why isn't clear. Years ago, two states were possible. No longer. Israel controls over half the West Bank and much of East Jerusalem. More is added daily.

When completed, the apartheid wall will control over 10% of Palestine. Isolated ghettoized bantustans on worthless scrubland won't work. Under those conditions, sovereign viability is impossible.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) claims otherwise. Its report titled "Moving Beyond the Status Quo: Safeguarding the Two-State Solution" endorses it.

Its action plan hopes to save it. It says the political and economic status quo isn't sustainable. At the same time, a "new reality is being created on the ground by Israel, which is destroying" the possibility.

The PA is institutionally ready for statehood, it stresses. In fact, it was ready over a generation ago.
