Based upon exclusive interviews with Arab diplomats by our own Middle East correspondent, Palestinian Pete, there appears to be a consensus forming that the recent cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas ending Israel's aggressive actions in Gaza could lead to a final two-state solution.
Thanks to the courageous efforts by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to broker the deal, there is now a possibility for a permanent peace agreement.
Palestinian Pete has learned that the Clinton/Morsi talks went well beyond the topic of a temporary cease-fire, and included the drawing up of permanent two-state boundaries.

Through unnamed contacts closely involved in the negotiations Palestinian Pete was able to obtain near-final maps presented by negotiators on each side.

It is clear from an examination of the maps, that with only some minor boundary adjustments, a two-state solution is clearly possible.
