In fact, everyone is for two-states, except the most extremist religious minority of nuts living in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Even Netanyahu claims he is now for two states. That's not the point. The point is that he is really NOT for two states, at least not for a solution that leads to a continguous, independent and sovereign Palestinian nation with its own borders on 22% of historical Palestine.
Israeli settlements now control about 60% of the West Bank, and by proclimation they will not be removed, a unified expanded Jerusalem negates a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem, the Jordan Valley will never be relinquished, and Israel demands control of the Jordanian border, actually a several mile strip of land along the border.
That is the latest Likud vision, and it equates to an Apartheid, Israel-surrounded group of bantustans in the West Bank to be called Palestine. So it is not as easy to say, we all agree to this or that, goodbye. It's over.
(Here's a hint: Preaching to the choir gets tiresome for the choir after a while.)
Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
