Is a two state solution still possible? | Inside Story


In the words of one Israeli opposition MP: ‘when Jerusalem burns, everything burns’.

Nahman Shai fears a newly passed law in the Knesset could lead to more unrest in the Middle East.

The Israeli law makes it harder to divide the contested capital of Jerusalem in any future deal with the Palestinians.

Israel says the city is its capital, Palestinians say East Jerusalem has always been their capital.

It all could have a dramatic impact on any peace deal between Israel and Palestine – with some saying it’s yet another fatal blow to the two-state solution.

On Inside Story, an in-depth discussion on the consequences of the latest law.

  1. I think Jeuraselem should be a city in Israel that is not a capital city or Jeuraselem should be a city like the Vatican. Are men going to let Lauren Leisman tell them who owns Jeuraselem?

  2. Looking at the way Americo relies on a two state, I would say you’re probably crazy for wanting to go in that direction, it just doesn’t work. I think a dictator society is the way to go, I don’t care what you people think, there can be good dictators. Donald Trump is technically a dictator, he doesn’t really acknowledge the government, and I personally think he’s doing just fine. You people worry about taxes and that bullshit the news keeps coming up with, 10 years from now let’s worry about that, I don’t know if anybody’s ever said this to you or not? But the person that takes Donald Trump‘s place might just keep the tax law the same, y’all ever think about that???? That’s your problem, You just listen to the news propaganda, and zero commonsense, SMH
