Two state solution

That's what Palestinians with an ironic bent are calling the division of the West Bank and Gaza between Fatah and Hamas.

Will there come a time when moderate Palestinians and moderate Israelis realize that they have more in common with each other than with the extremists on their respective sides? And might that prove durable enough to obtain for the Palestinians a state--one that is dedicated to living in peace with its neighbor? (Because if the Palestinians do not prove that they are able to live peacefully with Israel, there will be no state.)
