The last chance of a two-state solution was the Oslo Accord of 1992.

Which failed due to faults on both sides.

To advocate such a solution now is, at best, self-deception; the two states would be constantly locked in exterminatory war.

Thus the Holy Land cannot be shared; but will be sequestered in total by one side or the other.

Israel has to make a military response to the Hamas attacks of last Saturday.

That means hitting Gaza.

Which in turn inevitably means hitting civilians, even if care is taken not to target civilians.
