Letter to the editor: Only two-state solution will create peace between Israelis and Palestinians


Credible evidence exists to show that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu covertly supported Hamas for years to foster divisions between Palestians in the Gaza Strip, controlled by Hamas, and those in the West Bank, partially controlled by the Fatah-run Palestinian Authority, to reduce the likelihood of a unified Palestinian state. If accurate, how sad and cynical. Conditions for a lasting peace must be found, and nothing less than a two-state solution will yield results. Many Israeli peace groups support this outcome.
