Is Peace out of Reach?

This was a part of last Sunday's 60 Minutes show which I finally was able to watch. It is incredible that such an honest protrayal of the situation in the West Bank was aired on mainstream TV. It clearly argues that a two state solution is no longer viable. Now, people have to wrap their thoughts around a one-state solution.

Please let CBS know how much you appreciate this unbiased journalism. They need to hear from people right now.

This is what I wrote:

Thank you Bob Simon and all at CBS for airing the segment "Is Peace out of Reach?" last week. I don't think that most people in the United States had any idea about the complexity of the situation at this point due to the settlements. The more that I read, the more that I think that a one-state solution is the only viable one. A one-state solution where the country is a peaceful and just democracy for both Palestinians and Israelis alike. I would love to see more coverage regarding a one-state solution. This will start replacing the image that most Americans have of division and conflict in the region with one of compassion, understanding, and hope.

May there be peace in Palestine and Israel.
