The End of Israel - it's apartheid or nothing, says Olmert

Ehud Olmert: "If the two-state [bantustan] solution collapses, and we face a South African-style struggle for equal voting rights, then the State of Israel is finished."

It's true this would be the end of Israel as we know it today, that is, a "Jewish state". But how is having two states going to solve the problem? What's going to happen to Israeli-Arabs? Is the Palestinian state going to be a real state, with an army, control over its shores and sky? Will all 1948 refugees be given Palestinian citizenship?
These are some of the tough issues that have stalled the peace process for years. I don't believe that Israel is willing to give such concessions just yet, but they want a quick solution to the "demographic time bomb"
What's wrong with a one state solution just like SA? Jews will still have a home and all the issues mentioned above would disappear.
