'One-State' Idea Gains Support Of Some Palestinians http://nhpr.org/post/one-state-idea-gains-support-some-palestinians Peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians are at a standstill and have been for almost two years. The stated aim of those negotiations is what is known as the "two-state solution," which means the establishment of a viable, independent Palestinian state existing in peace alongside Israel.<p>But as hopes for an agreement diminish, Palestinians — and even some Israelis — are now talking about other solutions to the conflict.

They are Christian volunteers from the U.S. who have spent the morning pruning the grape vines.

But one case in particular — that of Khader Adnan, a member of the radical Islamic Jihad group — has been raising tensions between the two sides.<p>Israel's Justice Ministry agreed Tuesday to free Adnan, who has been on a hunger strike for more than two months and was apparently near death.<p>Adnan's case has focused international attention on the Israeli practice of administrative detention, or detention without trial.
