While Palestinians and the international community have traditionally favored a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a one-state solution is the only way to move forward.
[…]two-state solution proposals do not take into consideration the situation on the ground, in such a way that it is impossible to imagine how an independent and viable Palestinian state would be established. But while the two-state solution has yet to be totally ruled out, the United States must be considering an alternative solution more appropriate for Israel. This alternative solution would be based on Israel’s continued control over 60% of the West Bank and the establishment of a Palestinian state composed of isolated areas in the West Bank separated from each other by the territories taken over by Israel, including the Gaza Strip.
[…] one state solution . strategy will not gain popularity among the Palestinians who do not wish to become second class Israeli citizens.
But is their life better now under occupation?
Is there another option under the current circumstances? I think that if they retain this plan the only thing they will be losing is their illusions, and at this critical crossroad in Palestinian history this may be the only way to avoid weakening their cause. Their journey will be harsh and painful, but it is an opportunity to build a democratic state that the Ramallah gathering aspires to and which will allow the refugees to return to their ancestral land.
