Israel and the Palestinians: Is the Two­-State Solution Dead?

Email a Friend

President Obama had ambitions to bring peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but relations between the United States and Israel’s right­wing government have fallen to an all­time low. With a new Administration in Washington, the prospects for a two­state solution now seem almost impossible. Dani Dayan, the Consul General of Israel in New York, discusses his call for “peaceful nonreconciliation”; pollster Khalil Shikaki explains why some Palestinians accept a one­state solution that strikes them as reminiscent of apartheid; and Merav Michaeli, a Labor Party member of Israel’s Knesset, asserts that there is still a chance—however slim—for a negotiated peace.
