ABSTRACT
The author reflects on U.S. president Barack Obama's two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict. He says that with little probability for a permanent arrangement that can be reached through negotiations with the Palestinians, Obama proposes withdrawing from the West Bank and recognizing the Israeli settlements in the area as an integral part of Israel. He opines that this is the only recourse for Israel since a Jewish democratic state depends on a territory where Jews are a majority.
