Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"In order to ensure that we have a Jewish homeland, we cannot continue to control those territories where there is a Palestinian majority. We must as soon as possible lay down a clear-cut border that will ensure a Jewish majority within the state of Israel...The only solution now is two states -- one Jewish, one Palestinian"
