Argument: Two-state solution offers peace, the most important factor

Issue Report: Two-state solution to Israeli-Palestinian conflict


Shimon Peres. “One Region, Two States”. Washington Post. February 10, 2009: “Those not committed to this solution argue that, after the creation of a Palestinian state, Israel’s waist would be too narrow — some six miles — to ensure security for its citizens. […] Indeed, six miles will be too narrow to guarantee full security, which only reinforces our belief that Israel’s safety is not embedded only in territorial defense but in peace. Peace provides breadth of wings, even when the waist is narrow.”
