"No chance" for a two-state solution in Palestine

There is now "no chance" for a two-state solution in Palestine. So said Haneen Zoabi, a Palestinian member of Israel's parliament, the Knesset, in an interview with The Electronic Intifada:

"The reality goes more toward the one state solution," Zoabi said, "whether a democratic one-state solution, or a binational one-state solution."

Elected in 2009, Zoabi represents the National Democratic Alliance, and is the first woman to be elected on the list of an Arab party in Israel.

"We are struggling for a normal state," Zoabi explained, "which is a state for all of its citizens, [in] which the Palestinians and the Israeli Jews can have full equality. I recognize religious, cultural and national group rights for the Israelis, but inside a democratic and neutral state."-Interview with Knesset member Haneen Zoabi


  1. Jews = bad news.
    No, I mean it. Seriously.

  3. I was about to unleash on frankie but I decided against it.

    The Palestinians too have a lot to answer for.

  4. Too bad big oil (big corporate everything for that matter) owns the government and we have to put up with the mid-east shithole.

    I say cut off every penny to every side and let them slit throats until they turn it into a few stragglers in huts in burnt out tracks of desert...

    The only reason any American cares is because of delusional religion and oil...

  5. RB,

    What intrigues me is that that the region has been in the middle of so much for thousands of years. Oil yes, in the 20th century. But it goes beyond that. Maybe even beyond religion at this point.
