Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"The current outstanding issues between Israel and the Palestinians were identified and delineated at Oslo, and much of what has happened since has been the attempt to work out those matters. Most commentators agree that the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel in the future is inevitable. However, the boundaries of the Palestinian and Israeli states, and the relationship between the two entities -- and their neighbors -- are far from clear. The major concerns of both sides revolve around security, the status of Jerusalem, the future of the Jewish settlements in the territories, the return of, or compensation owed to, the Palestinian refugees, and water resources."
