It's only logical: Mr. Spock supports two-state solution for Mideast peace
In open letter published by left-wing NGO, Jewish-American actor and Star Trek icon Leonard Nimoy voices his support for a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

<snip>

In his support of the two-state solution, Nimoy also addresses Israel's refusal to negotiate with a Palestinian unity cabinet that would include Hamas, saying: "We cannot know yet what this unification of Hamas with Fatah means and we have to wait and see what emerges."

"Regardless, the principle of establishing two independent states, one Jewish and the other Palestinian, is still critical in this region for both Israel and the Palestinian people. That is the goal, to support the rational and moderate course," he added.

Referring to a peace push by a group of several leading former Israeli security establishment officials, Nimoy describes the plan as including "a Palestinian state alongside Israel with agreed-upon land swaps."

2. I can already hear the Israeli right-wing complaining
I agree with Spock. That seems the only way to fix it.

4. This is the moderate Israeli position.
It isn't particularly controvertial that Nimoy shares it. His only mistake was making the last Star Trek movie. (There, I got it off my chest).
