    The Arab population size is at the point of surpassing the Jewish population.  At this point, why should the Palestinians agree to a geographically splintered state on a subset of the occupied territories?  That might have made sense some years back, but at this point the Palestinians might as well hold out until they have a clear majority and ethnic/theocratic rule finally becomes unacceptable enough in the international community to provoke widespread sanctions.  To me a one state solution (and not the one Netanyahu would prefer) is starting to look more likely in the long run.
