Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"The nations think a new state of Palestine would solve all Mideast problems. Not true. A Palestinian state would be the ultimate poison pill for Israel, given the Palestinians' unbroken record of war, terrorism and broken peace agreements...
A PLO state will only guarantee unending war, drawing in all like-minded nations. The simple answer, instead, would be to create a vast separation from Israel, resettling the Palestinians in Jordan, where 80% of the population already is Palestinian."
