    Europe must understand the direction in which we are heading. We are racing towards a single Israeli-Palestinian state that will end up as the apartheid state of Israel. Such a joint state will not allow the Palestinians to exercise their full civil rights. Europe and the UK must speak up and recognise Palestine in order to save the two-state idea.
    We need to say to Israel: “This land is not exclusively yours. It also belongs to another indigenous people that have been living there for centuries: the Palestinians. We recognise this people’s right to share this land and its right to an independent state.”

    Aye - this is furthering the two-state solution and helping encourage Netanyahu to enter peace talks and agreements.

    What's the point? Palestine is just a failed state that is hanging on by a thread.

    Nay. I'm one of the more Pro-Palestine Tories and do not see this as furthering a two-state solution in any shape or form.

    It is only a 'failed state' because of Israel's attempts to strangle it in its cradle, which have succeeded in part but also served to radicalise the people to democratically elect Hamas.

    No, this achieves nothing and reduces the flexibility of the government to act according to the situation.
