The king is wise

Jordan's King Abdullah warned feuding palestinians on Wednesday that their hopes of statehood could be permanently wrecked within months unless they step back from the brink of civil war. "I really think that by the first half of 2007 we might wake up to the reality and realize that the two-state solution is no longer attainable, and then what?," he said. "My view of a two-state solution is a viable Palestinian state, and this is becoming more and more blurred for me."
