1. Judea/Samaria are forever. Lapid gone soon.
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.10.14)
Lapid is a gutless, shallow politician. Almost as bad as Livni. Judea and Samaria are forever. Lapid and his party are the Shinnui of today. Two elections from now they will be a bitter memory.
2. Two states are impossible unless...
Robert ,   USA   (01.10.14)
one state is the Jewish state of Israel from the Jordan River to the sea and the other is the Palestinian state of Jordan... nothing else works.
3. Lapid will unite the Israeli political Center.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.10.14)
That's the only way for Israel to move forward. The Right will destroy Israel through an isolation from the progressive world. The Left wing is alienating because it is stuck with the old dogmas and offers no hope. Religious politics leads Israel to a civil war. The only chance lies with the Centrist block. Lapid is riding the wave of hope for Israeli survival and acceptance in the world.
4. Mr Lapid
elygoldart ,   Minnesota USA   (01.10.14)
Will you give up your home for peace if asked???
5. Civil War and the eradication of the LEFT is the answer!
Time for Civil War   (01.10.14)
6. His dad was mealy-mouthed and (like Livni) so is Lapid
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (01.10.14)
He should have stayed in the entertainment business.
7. 2 States: Israel & Judea
Uzi ,   Ariel   (01.10.14)
Judea will be Jewish, rightist-democratic to a point. Will have 10% arabs. Rest - Jewish Pioneers.
8. 3.
Birdi ,   Israel   (01.10.14)
Lapid is riding into oblivion. Lapid will not unite Israelis. Israelis will rid their country of this pox of a man. This is not California, where freedom is a joint. This is Israel, where we need to hold onto what Lapid is trying, in vain, to remove.
9. Whose side is lapid on? Lapid a reckless gambler?
Michael Pielet ,   Israel   (01.11.14)
Lapid supports the creation of an artificial arab terrorist state in Judea and Samaria aligned with the Islamic terrorist state of iran, at the gates of Jerusalem and Gush Dan, in order to bring millions of arab terrorists to Judea and Samaria and to bring Iran closer to israel. Why?
10. lapid
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (01.11.14)
What kind of a "peace process "underway", he is halucinating about..? And what about the world? Israel is one of the smallest sovereign countries in the world and the only Democracy in the ME..Our enemies don't want to recognize Israel's right to exist, all the while we are providing most of their needs..He wants Israel to be the "Nany" state of it's enemies ?... Obviously, Lapid is a dangerous & fanatic masochist...
11. Lapid's comment "our pockets" tells us where he stands!
Michael Redbourn ,   Lisbon Portugal   (01.11.14)
12. At last, a sane voice represents Israel
Dan   (01.11.14)
The world must be made aware that there are sane anti-settler voices in Israel, not just Bibi's 'Greater Israel' fantasists. Well done Yair, I look forward to your prime-ministership.
13. There are already Two States.
Zechariah   (01.11.14)
There is the Jewish State The Palestinian Autonomy in Judae and Samaria and the Hamas State in the Small Area once known as the Gaza Strip .In Areas of the Hamas State are the defeated from Jaffa and other Areas that led the Blockade of Jews Attempting escape from Nazi occupied Europe even to The Empty Areas of Eretz Yisroel.Their Ancestors Aligned with the Grand Mufti Husseini who aligned with the Nazis met The Nazi leader for Lemon Juice and Agreed on the Jewish Genocide in Europe and the then Mandated Jewish Homeland.They Practice Holocaust Denial and Fatah was derived from the Grand Muftis Supporters.Until first Holocaust Denial is a Crime as in Germany then can be a Truce but Nothing like Peace.
14. peace will come
alsky ,   Toronto   (01.11.14)
when and if Muslims can recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jews
15. Lapid
Harold ,   USA   (01.11.14)
Lapid is a peaceful man and is suitable to be the next prime minister of Israel.
16. #8, The Lapid light can reach under a burqa.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.11.14)
Be prepared and you can have a joint when you join Lapid. Yes, there is nothing more beautiful than freedom, in California and in Israel.
17. Well Israel will lose her legitimacy...
FireJeff ,   Jerusalem   (01.11.14)
If the government gave up Judea & Samaria, the heart of Eretz Israel. Whatever Israel does, the world will not be happy. If Israel returned all lands conquered in 1967, the world would ask Israel to return to 181 UN resolution plan... If Israel wants to be respected and to be heard, she has to stop this fake "peace" process and says clearly that no terrorist state will be created in Eretz Israel.
18. No, it's the Left who will leads to a civil war...
FireJeff ,   Jerusalem   (01.11.14)
If it was a left government, Judea & Samaria would be evicted and a terrorist terrist would be created in the heart of Eretz Israel. This would create two civil wars : one inside the israeli people (the governement cannot evicted thousand of people like that !), an other with the PA Arabs who will promote terrorism against Israel and create an other terrorist state inside Israel !
19. Lapid the US Lap Dog
bernard ross   (01.11.14)
20. He does not fool nobody
David ,   On this planet   (01.11.14)
Father and son same as one.His aim is to be prime Minister. He is and always will be a radio talk host.
21. One State, Two States or No State
Syd Chaden ,   Palermo Calif USA   (01.11.14)
It is absurd to discuss a second state in terms of bringing peace to the Middle East. One state, two states or no states have nothing to do with peace. There will be no peace so long as Muslims follow the Islamic doctrine of "death to infidels". Western leaders ignore the doctrine, but Muslims take it very seriously. The two major branches of Islam, the Sunnis and the Shia, each consider the other to be infidels, and they have been killing each other for centuries, for that reason. They still are, in Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Egypt, Sudan, Nigeria, Lebanon and Syria. The doctrine is religious, and, therefore, is not susceptible to change by diplomacy or even war. Only the leading Sunni and Shia clerics, acting in concert, could redefine the doctrine so that it does not require killing non-believers in Islam, and issue Fatwas prohibiting further killing. There is nothing in the doctrine that establishes the number of states that would be required for peace. The two-state idea is a Western construct that has no effect on Islamic religious doctrine.
22. 2 states
jayampathi de silva ,   sri lanka   (01.11.14)
2 states already exist, that is Kingdom of Jordan and state of Israel.politicians pl refer to the original partition plan of league of nation drawn in 1922.
23. Poor maths: a 4-state is not a 2-state.
BUTSeriously ,   Sydney   (01.11.14)
The first 2-state: Jordan. The second 2-state: West Bank" The third 2-state: Gaza. Israel urgently needs brave ones who will denounce Britain's first 2-state that caused the Holocaust and demand its restoring: "It will be a historic compromise to grant two states in Palestine, one for the Jews and one for the Arabs" - Churchill.
24. India wanted 2 states two, one for India second for Brits.
Miron ,   USA   (01.11.14)
And yet there is India and no second state. And you know what, they are picking up economy... even though Mr. Lapid does not approve of right wing.
25. Two States, but new borders .........
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (01.11.14)
that don't endanger Israeli defenses. A demilitarized Arab Palestine. IDF in Jordan River's Valley for, at least, 50 years. No "right of return". All Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty, with autonomous Arab quarters. If Ramallah's leaders, in fact, accept it, I believe the so wanted peace will happen. It depends only on them.
26. There are already two states, based on international law:
N.L.Katz ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (01.11.14)
An Arab state, on 77% of Palestine, located between the Jordan River and the Arabian desert. And, a Jewish state, on 23% of Eretz Israel (Land of Israel), located between the Jordan River and the Med. Sea. All that we need do is study, once again, the fundamental elements of international law that brought about this 1921/22 partition of Eretz Israel/Palestine, and learn to implement it peacefully for the benefits of all.
27. Is Lapid greater than Hashem?
Sam ,   Texas   (01.11.14)
Maybe in his own mind. There will not be two states, ever. Lapid lines up with the world, against Hashem and His promises. Who do you think will prevail?
28. #27 only if existence is a meaningful predicate
On the Balcony   (01.11.14)
29. #22
Harold ,   USA   (01.11.14)
Your comment is recognized by you and your followers only and not by the United Nations including the United States.
30. #13
Harold ,   USA   (01.11.14)
Please try to present your idea to the United Nations and especially to the United States and find out if they listen to you. The EU and the United States have made up their mind to creat a Palestinian State and solve the 60 year old conflict.
