The issue of a two-state solution begins with Israel. It's up to Israel to negotiate a solution. The lands in dispute need a calm reasoned argument to support a settlement. Palestinians, if they really want a lasting homeland, should stop their terrorism and remember that dog fights usually are won by the big dog. Oh, the wasted years of peace and prosperity just to prove a moot point of their Arab ancestry. Recently, a 3000-year-old Jewish settlement was discovered, placing Jews in the disputed land century before the Arab people.
