Johnson's doing his best at PMQs to hype the deal as an excellent two-state solution.
The two states being:

How very strange...

Hagai El-Ad[1] (or Hagai Elad or Chagai Elad, Hebrew: חגי אלעד; born: October 1, 1969, Haifa) is an Israeli human rights activist who has served as the director general of B'Tselem since May 2014.[2] Prior to that, he was director of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel and the Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance.
In October 2016, the Security Council held a session on "Settlements as an obstacle to peace and a two-state solution." Also participating in the discussion was El-Ad, who called for an end to the occupation in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.[3] He appeared again before the Security Council, this time in an official session, on October 18, 2018. His appearance before the Security Council is a subject of controversy in Israel.[4][5]

Israel is often noted for punching well above its weight in the international electronic & IT sectors, but thanks to whoever wrote an app for the upcoming election on 2nd March which was being used by Netanyahu & his Lukid party, we have a quite serious security breach.

Personal Data of All 6.5 Million Israeli Voters Is Exposed

The website for an election app used by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s party made it possible to view full names, addresses, identity card numbers and more.
A software flaw exposed the personal data of every eligible voter in Israel — including full names, addresses and identity card numbers for 6.5 million people — raising concerns about identity theft and electoral manipulation, three weeks before the country’s national election.

The security lapse was tied to a mobile app used by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud party to communicate with voters, offering news and information about the March 2 election. Until it was fixed, the flaw made it possible, without advanced technical skills, to view and download the government’s entire voter registry, though it was unclear how many people did so.
