Traditionally US policy was that 2 state solution is a must. President Trump declared that he will support any solution that both parties like. He is showing flexibility and since prior approach didn't work, Trump is asking people to think outside the box.


I will argue that (1) a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli territorial dispute is a must if we are interested in arbitrating according to a common standard of justice.

(1): it is hopeless to assign an exact magnitude of blame in which one side or the other receives a predominant burden of fault.
(2): in absence of exact calibrations, a 50-50 model to dispute resolution is both most practical and fairest.
(3): natalist combat (meaning the struggle to demographically erode away the other party is practical but immoral)
Debate Round No. 1


Trump is not advocating for either solution. A good negotiator looks for creative win-win options that don't impose unnecessary constraints. It is important to remember that prior approach didnot result in any meaningful outcome, so trying to open the possibilities may introduce other creative outside the box thinking.
