Israel conundrum

this evening (monday 2nd), 8.30-9.00pm (repeated 9.30pm sunday), on bbc radio 4
the middle east conundrum (presented by edward stourton)

Edward Stourton asks if there any chance of a long-term solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Tensions have been rising following the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem and the deadly clashes at the border between Israel and Gaza.
The peace process – if it exists at all – seems to be in deep freeze. The idea of a two-state solution does not appear to be getting any closer, while a one-state solution would effectively mark the end of a Jewish state.
Does Israel have a long-term strategy?
