CBS’ 60 Minutes featured a report on the status of a “two-state” Middle East peace deal that would create a Palestinian state along side Israel.

CBS reported that Israel settlers have moved to the West Bank in an attempt to prevent a two state solution.

“Daniella Weiss moved from Israel to the West Bank 33 years ago. She has been the mayor of a large settlement.”

“‘I think that settlements prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state in the land of Israel. This is the goal. And this is the reality,’ Weiss told 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon.”
