Now Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
“The only immediate settlement possible, with finality, is the establishment of two States, one Jewish and the other Arab.”
Letter from David Ben-Gurion to British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin, Feb. 1947, quoted in British Embassy Tel Aviv, "Ben Gurion Letter Presented to Israeli PM," gov.uk, Apr. 25, 2013
[Editor's Note: Prior to Ben-Gurion's 1947 Pro position statement made above, his position was Con Two-State Solution as indicated in 1938 speech to the 20th Zionist Congress quoted below.]
"[I am] not satisfied with part of the country, but on the basis of the assumption that after we build up a strong force following the establishment of the state - we will abolish the partition of the country and we will expand to the whole land of Palestine."
