Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"More than the road map, the truce or even Mr. Abbas, the fence stands a good chance of fundamentally transforming the strategic landscape between Israelis and Palestinians. Indeed, if any initiative can revive the possibility of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict -- a solution that had all but vanished as a result of the terrorism and violence of what has come to be known in the Middle East as the 'thousand-day war' -- it is the erection of a physical barrier between Israelis and Palestinians... The fence route should not run so far east of the Green Line or take in so much Palestinian territory that it prevents the future creation of a contiguous Palestinian state."
