Republicans had to do some damage control after Mother Jones magazine published a covert video of Mitt Romney's comments to wealthy donors that a two state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was unrealistic. The video, which was published online on the magazine’s website, provoked handwringing that Romney's remarks could compromise U.S. standing as an "honest broker" in the peace process should Romney become president.
But Romney isn’t alone in his doubts about the viability of a two-state solution. A growing number of activists, scholars, and commentators, Palestinian and Israeli, have been declaring that the two-state solution is dead for some time now, based on physical and political realities on the ground in the occupied West Bank.
The failure of the Oslo Accords to lead to a negotiated two-state settlement has led to calls for something else: a one-state solution where Palestinians and Jews would live together in full civil and political equality.
