Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"By now all the parties know exactly what is needed to bring about a fair and viable agreement to the Middle East conflict. Key elements to such an agreement was reached in the Egyptian resort of Taba in January 2001 and have been articulated by US president George Bush...
What we need now is a handful of honest and authentic leaders meeting in secret to work out all the details. After getting the blessing of the US and other international parties such package agreement would be presented to the Palestinian and Israeli public. The majority of both sides will be asked to say yes or no without the chance to make any amendments. I am confident that such a concerted effort will receive positive approval in a referendum of Palestinians and Israelis. It would surely end unnecessary suffering, injury and death and usher in genuine peace."
