While the world fixated on Michael Jackson, Israel agreed to divide its lands:
Israeli President Shimon Peres said on Tuesday that the country’s discussion about two-state solution came to a conclusion and Israel would support the plan.
“Two states for two people, a state for the Israeli Jewish people beside a state for the Palestinian Arab people,” Peres said in a joint press conference with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo. As for the Israeli plans in the future, Peres said Israel will make more efforts for peace process.
This follows prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s call, on his 100th day in office, for “two states for two peoples.”
The next step will be third-party oversight. Look for the Vatican to volunteer.
