. . . Do you really think, if a 2-state solution is agreed on, that the Israeli military will do whatever it takes to move the 500,000 Israeli settlers/colonists from the West Bank back behind the green line, to the pre-1967 borders of Israel?
Let's not forget: the settler/colonists are people who murdered their own prime minister, Yitzhak Rabin, and who continue to boast about it. These are people who produced the mass killer, Dr. Baruch Goldstein. These are people who are armed and who do not hesitate to use violence.
In other words, would a genuine 2-state solution provoke a civil war? Would the Israeli army split? Would a well-trained and committed section break away? In Algeria in the early 1960s, the far right-wing OAS (Secret Army Organization), composed of French colonists and soldiers, split off, and waged a ferocious terrorist campaign in both Algeria and France itself. Is there any reason to believe the same thing would not happen in Israel?
Would the United Nations, or other foreign military forces, have to be called in? How long would such a civil war last?
And why do those of you who support the 2-state solution think it is self-evidently more practical, less utopian, then the 1-state solution?
