Einat Wilf on why the two-state solution is so elusive

Why is a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict so elusive? Dr. Einat Wilf thinks the answer is simple, but that we’ve been unwilling to accept it.

More than 20 years after the Oslo Accords fell apart and now with the most right-wing Israeli government in history, we’ve never felt farther from a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Why is the two-state solution so elusive? Why can’t two peoples, both of whom have legitimate claims to the land — why can’t they find a way to make it work?

A former member of Israel’s Knesset and the author of seven books, Dr. Einat Wilf has spent years researching the conflict. And her findings get to the essence of the struggle between Israelis and Palestinians. Listen here:
