Discouraged? Construct!

As noted by Alana Goodman:-

Why do Israelis support a two state solution, but oppose a freeze on settlement construction?

Jeremy Sharon argues that it’s because they have become discouraged about the possibility of a peace deal at this point in time:

“Support for the notion of ‘two states for two peoples’ remains high at over 60 percent because Israelis acknowledge that ultimately, continued rule over the Palestinians is untenable. But there is no desire to rush into an irreversible agreement which could result not with the shelling of Sderot or Haifa, but of Tel Aviv.”

Think about that.
