Is The Two-State Solution Dead?

Issue: 2012, Volume 45, Issue 2
Subject: Peace Process|Politics
Author: Halper, Jeff
Issue Description: When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu formed a new unity government in May, 2012, with Israel’s largest opposition party, political pundits here and in Israel hailed it as an opportunity--perhaps the last one--to create a two-state solution to the Palestine-Israel impasse.  Not going to happen, says Jeff Halper.  Moreover, just hoping that it might happen is counter-productive.  Jeff Halper is an Israeli, an archaeologist, the co-founder of the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions, a 2006 nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, and the 2009 recipient of the prestigious Kant Foundation World Citizen Award.  And, as it turns out, he is far from alone in thinking the two-state solution is dead.
