"France has a very clear position that joins that of Spain and all of our European partners: It is that there will be no solution to the conflict in the Middle East without recognition of two nation-states for two peoples. The nation-state of Israel for the Jewish people, and the nation-state of Palestine for the Palestinian people. There is no getting away from this."
-- French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe
This is not something the Palestinian Authority wants to hear, but it's something most Israelis want. In this formulation is the seed of permanent solution to the Middle East crisis, a recognition that the Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people.
