ABSTRACT
The article explores the impact of the separation barrier, instituted by the Israeli government in the West Bank, on the two-state solution for the Israel-Palestine settlement conflict. It also discusses some aspects related to the barrier, which include the Israeli needs that were met by the construction of the separation barrier, and the problems caused by the barrier for Israel. The separation barrier is expected to destroy the chances of creating a long-term solution for the settlement conflict between the two states. It is also concluded that Israel's aim for the barrier is to solve the demographic problem between it and Palestine, while minimizing its internal political responsibility.
