At some point the fighting will subside. Then what? Is Israel’s goal of destroying Hamas plausible? If not, what new foundations for its security can it build? How can a stable Palestinian state be born without the support of factions dedicated to Israel’s destruction- and without support from Netanyahu’s government? And how can their neighbours be bound into peaceful co-existence with the Jewish state when the idea is still anathema to Iran? A two-state solution has never looked less realistic, or more urgent.
