1 State Solution
By Micah Halpern
Support for a single state solution of the Israeli/Palestinian situation is higher now than it has been.
A recent survey shows that 33% of Palestinians support the idea that there should be only one state for both Israelis and Palestinians. The study was done by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research.
Just three months ago, 24% of Palestinians supported a single state solution.
The one state solution is most popular among young people and nationalists.
This study indicates that the mainstream population of the Palestinians have lost confidence - or are quickly losing confidence, in their leadership to bring a resolution to the stalemate.
This number represents the highest number in 30 years of surveys on this subject.
If there were to be a single state, the populations would be split evenly with about 7 million Israelis and 7 million Palestinians.
The results of these studies suggest a troubling future in terms of resolving this problem.
