Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"The Israeli disengagement from Gaza is by now imminent and, if everything goes well, should start on 17 August. Our hope is that Disengagement will take place on time, in an orderly manner and in co-ordination with the Palestinians and that it will lead to the emergence of two states -- both implementing their respective commitments under the Road Map."
