The author discusses the proposed two-state solution to end the conflict between Israel and Palestine. The author mentions that the viability of the proposed solution is being extinguished under the leadership of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which is evidenced by the illiberality and intolerance of Israel towards Palestine. He also blames the leadership of Palestinian leaders Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad on the loss of a chance for peace between the two countries.
