Sic Transit Zion

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is becoming openly pessimistic about the two-state solution:
"Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said on Thursday he feared the concept of a two-state solution to end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians 'is beginning to erode.'

"'I would like to express concern that the situation is very difficult,' he said in remarks at a Washington think tank.

"'The concept of a Palestinian state ... with an Israeli state, I fear, is beginning to erode,' he said."

What makes me pessimistic is not just the current situation on the ground, but the direction the current Israeli government is pursuing. Matt Duss addressed some problems here.
