mg.co.za — A poll has found that 75% of Israeli Jews oppose the creation of a Palestinian state within the pre-1967 borders if it means withdrawing Israeli troops from the Jordan Valley.

Israel condemns British MPs’ vote to recognise Palestinian state

theguardian.com — Israel has condemned a vote by British MPs in favour of recognising a Palestinian state as "undermining chances for peace" as Britain's ambassador to Israel warned that the move reflected changing British public opinion. The non-binding vote, supported by 274 MPs with 12 voting against, follows a recent announcement by Sweden's new government that it will recognise a Palestinian state in the future.

MPs’ vote on Palestine state recognition is part of growing international trend

theguardian.com — High-octane debates are nothing new in the tangled history of the Middle East's oldest conflict.
