We were very surprised when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he would support a two-state solution with Palestine, because he swore up and down during reelection that a two-state solution wasn’t going to happen.
President Obama echoed his skepticism during a Tuesday aired interview with Israeli television.
Obama said Netanyahu’s position “has so many caveats, so many conditions that it is not realistic to think that those conditions would be met at any time in the near future.
“So the danger is that Israel as a whole loses credibility. Already, the international community does not believe that Israel is serious about a two-state solution.”
Caveats + Conditions + Israel losing credibility + nobody thinking they are serious = No two-state solution
