The argument isn't that Israel wouldn't accept it, but that every government administration they have had for 50 years has actively fought against it--by continuing to build illegal settlements in the occupied territories--while claiming to be open to accepting it. I don't think that's fallacious, but arguably defeatist. The alternative being promoted is a one-state solution though, which some say is way more fantastical than the two-state solution. So I don't know if defeatist is the right word. What misinformation are you referring to?
