A single state that would be agreeable to both sides isn't the "ultimate deal" of Trump's imaginings; it's the ultimate fantasy. "I can live with either one", Trump said.
Foreign policy analysts were quick to mock the poor guy for his obvious lack of knowledge: "One state - an impossibility".
The peace talks between Israel and Palestine have been stalled since April 2014.
There is no possibility of a two-state solution under current - or any foreseeable future - circumstances. As a result, Netanyahu has been forced again and again to pay lip service to the very idea-a Palestinian state-he had made his name opposing. Bennett argued that regional security risks and the decline of the nation-state meant the responsible option was for Israel to permit Palestinian "autonomy" in some areas, while "applying Israeli law and asserting national sovereignty" in settlements that will formally annex land.
Netanyahu, who was on an official visit to Australia, told journalists that he would only accept a Palestinian autonomous state in which Israel has the main security control over all Palestinian territories.
In Israel, Netanyahu's far-right Likud party has opposed the two-state solution, preferring instead one, Jewish, state. One could reasonably argue that it was only an opening negotiating tactic by Netanyahu, one aimed at appeasing the right-wing members of his coalition. It was only when reporters started asking questions that both leaders responded. Nevertheless, his silence, in tandem with his remarks after Jews were specifically targeted by one of the Paris Islamic jihadist terrorists, also suggests he views anti-Semitic attacks primarily as evidence of a shrinking "gray zone" which will benefit Israel by providing greater political and economic support from American Jews and other potential victims.
As of 2012, Israeli authorities put the Arab population of the West Bank at roughly 2.7 million. When someone asks me about my citizenship, it sparks confusion: I am a Palestinian living in East Jerusalem with a residency permit, along with an Israeli-issued travel document and a temporary Jordanian passport.
The United States should renew its commitment to the two-state solution and opposition to new Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
As Israel pushes for more settlements, younger Palestinians are talking more and more of pressing for one binational state in which they have equal voting rights with Israeli Jews. Aside from concerns about the implications for Israel, they say, that could make it less attractive to more liberal Jews, who already are drifting away from the community and are increasingly critical of Israel's policies.
So a one-state solution satisfies neither side.
Yet keeping the two-state concept on life support was still a valuable strategy for two key reasons.
Israeli soldiers and Jewish settlers clashed with Palestinian protesters on Friday in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron on the anniversary of a 1994 massacre carried out by a far-right Jewish settler.
Such a solution would effectively be an apartheid state.
In a more pragmatic argument, academic Padraig O'Malley has claimed that the Israeli army could not be relied on to enforce the closure of Israeli settlements in Palestine if a two-state solution was agreed.
