Two-thirds of Palestinians believe a two-state solution to their conflict with Israel is no longer possible, a poll said Tuesday.
The share of those who lost faith in such a deal rose from 56 percent in September to 65 percent now, probably due to an acceleration of settlement activity, said the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey research.
Most in the international community still back the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, even though a deal appears to be increasingly complicated, in part because of the continued growth of settlements. Gaps between Israeli and Palestinian leaders remain wide, preventing any meaningful talks since 2009. [ ]
The survey also found that 54 percent have no faith in the newly elected leadership of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Fatah movement.

There should be no Palestinian-controlled areas in Israel, and no Palestinian state (other than Jordan.)
They want a one-state solution, Palestine, with the full elimination of Israel.
linking up with Gaza doesn’t even make sense. The 2 state solution is just a thing to say that doesn’t accomplish anything but is PC
The Jordanians for the most part don’t regard themselves as “Palestinian” either. There are the occasional radical politicians that assert either affinity for or claim the identity of “Palestinian(s)”, but nobody’s changing the name of Jordan to “the state of Palestine”. The notion of a Palestinian state is a deliberate declaration of war on Israel, and the ultimate goal is a pan-Arabic Caliphate.
Oh, I know what their goal is. They haven’t exactly been quiet about it.
You got that right.
Not for the next 8 years, anyway - maybe longer.
Eventually you're going to run out of your OWN DAMN KIDS to wrap up in bombs to send off to a wedding somewhere.
The only rational solution is to bulldoze the Arab squatters out of the Holy Land.
I suspect most of us Israelis don’t believe in the two-state solution either. The scary demographic threat turned out to be fake news ginned up to convince Jews to support dividing the country. Now Israelis know that even after Israel were to formally annex Judea and Samaria, the Jewish Israeli population would represent more than 70% of the people in the area.
Their name refers to a nonexistent people. The notion is dishonest from the outset.
2 state solution is just a PC thing western leaders say to make arabs happy enough to sell their oil to them.
Even if they could establish a two state solution, the day after it was established the Palis would step up their terrorist activities to gain even more concessions.
The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle (jihad) against the State of Israel, for our Arab unity (pan-Arabism).That has been the plan for decades.

Moslem-controlled “palestine” already exists, its called Jordan and it comprises over 70 percent of the territory
So why would anyone in their right mind push it.
Jordanians are not calling themselves “Palestine” en masse.
Yes. They can call themselves anything they want, as far as i care
