DEAR PROCON.ORG READERS: We’re being outspent by biased organizations that use millions of dollars to misinform you. This week we’re asking our readers to help us. We survive on donations, which keep us independent and ad-free. If every one of our readers gave $3 now, the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be over. We’re a small nonprofit, but it costs a lot to keep our servers, research staff, and programs going. ProCon.org is your oasis on the Internet for unbiased information on important issues. If ProCon.org is useful to you, please take a minute to keep us online and ad-free. Thank you.
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"...[T]he only path to resolving this conflict is a two-state solution involving the political division of Jerusalem, with Jewish neighbourhoods becoming the capital of Israel, and Arab neighbourhoods becoming the capital of Palestine.
If the conflict is to end in a peaceful resolution – in a year or in twenty years – it will only be along these lines. No other option exists. Tragically, the ongoing creation of irreversible facts on the ground may well destroy even this option, and with it, the prospects of a two-state solution. In this case, Israelis and Palestinians will be condemned to an eternally haemorrhaging, Balkanised future."
