Now Pro Two-State Solution to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"I propose what I call the Stability Plan, which I will promote throughout Israel's new Knesset legislative session. Palestinians living in certain portions of the West Bank (known as Area A and Area B) should govern themselves. They should hold their own elections, run their own schools, issue their own building permits and manage their own health-care system. In short, they should run their own lives. Israel should not interfere in day-to-day governance... The other part of the Stability Plan deals with the remaining portion of the West Bank, known as Area C, where 400,000 Israelis and 70,000 Palestinians live. Under my plan, Israel would annex this territory, much as it exercised sovereignty over East Jerusalem in 1967 and the Golan Heights in 1981. The Palestinians who live in Area C would be offered full Israeli citizenship."

"There are certain things that most of us understand will never happen: 'The Sopranos' are not coming back for another season... and there will never be a peace plan with the Palestinians... I will do everything in my power to make sure they never get a state."
