The White House admits that a two-state solution in the occupied Palestinian territories is not plausible within President Barack Obama’s tenure.
During a Thursday evening conference, White House Middle East Coordinator Rob Malley told reporters not to hold out for a major breakthrough regarding the Palestinian issue.
“This is really the first time since the first term of the Clinton administration where we have an administration that faces a reality where the prospect of a negotiated two-state solution is not in the cards for the remainder -- in the time that’s remaining,” he said.
“The president has reached that conclusion -- that right now, barring a major shift, the parties are not going to be in the position to negotiate a final status agreement,” a HuffPost report quoted Malley as saying.
The purpose of the conference was to brief reporters on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming visit to the White House. It will be the first time Netanyahu and Obama meet since the Israeli premier made a campaign promise in March to not allow for the creation of a Palestinian state if re-elected.
Now James Morris, editor with the America-hijacked.com, says that “anybody objectively looking at the situation knows that two-state solution was dead long ago,” and that “the only viable solution is one-state solution: an independent state in Palestine.”
Morris also referred to America’s support for the Israelis throughout their hostilities against the Palestinians and said that Washington rewarded the Tel Aviv regime “with even more bombs and even more ordinance to help murder those Palestinians.”
This is while tension in the occupied territories continues over Israeli policies against the Palestinians.
The latest spate of violence was triggered by the Israeli regime’s imposition in August of restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque.
Palestinians are also angry at increasing violence by illegal Israeli settlers, who frequently storm al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam after Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina. They say the Tel Aviv regime seeks to change the status quo of the compound.
