Two-State Solution Today

“No one is going to uproot 750,000 middle-class and upper-middle-class Jews from their homes.”  [The Two-State Solution: It is Never Going to Happen by Rabbi Dov Fischer June 1,2021.]

The Times of Israel published “Doc or no doc, we need to steer the ship towards a two-state solution ” on June 1, 2021. Throughout Steve Greenberg’s blog, there is no reference to geography nor names for his assertion. Obviously, one party Israel, already has its capital in Jerusalem and presumably, the other party is the so-called Palestinians.

In fact, back on December 30, 2014, Stephen Roberts advanced similar arguments on the given subject with his “Without a Palestinian state, Israel can never be Jewish or democratic.” Both of these papers suffer from the same malady by ignoring history. The real issue is who is indigenous to the geography in question.

When Gaza was handed over to Hamas with a complete infrastructure by Sharon as a test case it turned out to be a lesson not to be repeated, So, if there is to be a two-state solution, it has to be distant from Israel and is clearly the responsibility of the creators of the “Palestinians,” the Arab League.

There are numerous proposals for a Palestinian State, two examples:

[a] Middle East Eye July 6, 2018 – Sisi holds key to Trump’s Sinai Plan for Palestinians by Jonathon Cook.

[b] Think-Israel July-Aug 2004: A Win-Win Solution to the Arab-Israeli Conflict by Rachel Neuwirth.

For history, I would suggest from my archives:
