Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"Between the Jordan and Mediterranean there are today 11 million people, of which 50 percent are Palestinian Arabs. The state will not exist for one day without being a democracy and therefore the choice is very clear: if there are not two states - there is no Jewish state."
