Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"[T]he majority of Palestinians are ready for peace with Israel in return from the complete withdrawal from the Palestinian territories occupied in 1967 and finding a just solution for the question of the refugees. I hope that Hamas will agree with this positing because other positing if it is not possible is impossible."
