DescriptionThe two-state solution has failed, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said Sunday at the official Knesset memorial marking 17 years since the assassination of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, best remembered for his tenacious efforts to make peace with the Palestinians through the Oslo Accords in the 1990s.

"In so small a space between the Jordan [River] and the [Mediterranean] Sea there cannot be more than one country," Rivlin said. The two-state solution, he continued, is based on the assumption that Jews and Arabs cannot live together and therefore must separate.

"But even today cities and towns across the country refute this claim," he added. "On both sides of the Green Line, Jews and Arabs live with one another," noting how the two peoples study in universities together.
