Israel Remains Committed to the Two-State Solution
As PM Netanyahu said on June 9, 2015:
"I remain committed to a solution of two states for two peoples as I said at Bar-Ilan [University]. I said in Bar-Ilan the solution as I see it is a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state. These are not conditions for entering the talks. I place no conditions. But these are the foundations of an enduring peace between us and the Palestinians, assuming the region will not be swept by these larger forces.
The Palestinians expect us to recognize a Palestinian nation-state but they won't recognize a Jewish nation-state. A Jewish nation-state for the Jewish people with full rights for all the non-Jews that live here. I wish I could say the same for the Palestinians."
And What Do the Palestinians Say?
"Our conflict has never been about the establishment of a Palestinian state. It has always been about the existence of the Jewish state."
