While the outlines of a two-state solution are generally known, the maximum that any government of Israel will be ready to offer the Palestinians and still survive politically is much less than the minimum that any Palestinian leader can accept. So while the two-state solution is a very nice slogan, it cannot be achieved in the foreseeable future. We can either stay in the same situation and try to manage the conflict, or we can try to think of some other solution.
