The elections in Israel on March 17 are likely to determine if the next Government of Israel will advance the two states solution or if some other option will be on the table. Either way Israel goes, these are perhaps the most critical times and crucial decisions any Israeli Prime Minister will have to make. This talk will look at the issues and the chances of peace and the consequences for Israel if no peace is reached.
