I thought I would add this. It keeps track of predictions of the future, who said them, and their status. I think you would like it.

The 2-state solution could fail spectacularly: Hamas or Syria takes over the new Palestinian State and gathers foreign aid from some places and military aid from others. Then they find or create a provocation on the border and launch a new, bigger war. Tens of thousands of people could die. Maybe more.

And the one-state solution isn’t a solution at all; It’s just a threat to push along the 2-state solution.
