Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"The forthcoming Israeli withdrawal from Gaza and parts of the northern West Bank continues to overshadow all other issues. Disengagement is an important step forward: withdrawal from occupied territory, albeit partial and on terms largely set by the occupier, is a positive, precedent-setting step and one that the entire international community cannot but support. Moreover, as stated repeatedly by the Quartet, it offers an opportunity to re-energize the Road Map. It is a moment pregnant with hope but also fraught with peril."
"Briefing for the Security Council 4207," U.N. Security Council Briefings, July 21, 2005
