Another peace is possible

"Our concern is growing that without a serious political prospect for the Palestinians that gives to moderate leaders a horizon that they can show to their people that indeed there is a two-state solution that is possible, we will lose the window for a two-state solution."
Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice's testimony before the US. Senate

"In my estimation ... The Palestinians are exhausted. There isn't the energy in the public and there also isn't the leadership right now that could spur such resistance,"
Shin Bet Head, Yuval Diskin's testimony before the Knesset's FAD Committee

"Another peace is necessary."
A statement by Another Voice, a Palestinian group that opposed One Voice's "peace concert"

Another peace is truly necessary. The inviability of the two state solution is finally knocking the doors of the mainstream. We always saw that it is not viable, more importantly we thought it was unjust.
On Wednesday 31st of October, Ramallah will host Dam Rap, Ramallah Underground,
Reem Talhami, Jamil Al-Sayeh and other performers in an event that is intended to affirm a commitment to a just peace that will not infringe on "Palestinians' rights."
While I believe that a true and solid movement should be based on principles far more verifiable that "Palestinian Rights", I am hoping there would be a breakthrough in the deadlock that has characterised youths in Palestine and will create a nucleus of a movement that will work for a real alternative of what is currently being discussed in negotiation rooms.
