Why the two-state solution is delusional

By Barry Shaw NETANYA, Israel — What is ignored by people advocating a two-state solution is the clear and present danger of Hamas in the West Bank.

Why I no longer believe in a two state solution

By Barry Shaw NETANYA, Israel — I used to be a two-stater – until it blew up in my face with a spate of Palestinian terror bombings here in Netanya.
