I read this article and my only reaction about the basic idea of a historic solution was one word.... "again?" Then reality set in when it got around to the Palestinian view, and then the quote that pretty much reflects the Israeli position... "Israel’s new defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, a hawkish former army chief of staff, has backed building the settlements and retroactive authorization of some settlement outposts built without permission." And there you have it. This has got to stop, and I supported Israel for years as they were the oppressed people. How quickly they forget how they were treated. There is only one solution to this. Stop building in occupied territories, and come up with a two state solution. Otherwise, Israel is wasting everyone's time.

No peace will ever come with settlements in occupied territories. It's that simple. Water is also the issue. Just wait until the Palestinian spring. The pictures on facebook and cell phone video will show the horror. It will be ugly for Israel.

part of the problem with the public's understanding about the "settlements" is that the Palestinians are talking about some area's that Israel will never give up. so on and on it goes. some of these settlements are in reality cities with a very large population. it is like Mexico saying that Houston is a settlement. People around the world hear such propaganda, and really have no true way of understanding the realities of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
