There are no good answers or solutions. People will be displaced. There will be misery on all sides, but for the State of Israel to survive, ” two states for two people” is a solution. Will either population be happy with the sacrifice? I don’t know.
I do know, I don’t part with my stuff easily. I understand their feelings. For the sake of Peace and because the times necessitate this process, I can only recommend what I think is reasonable. The land swaps and population dislocations to be worked out over time with replacement towns to be ready in move in condition as populations are relocated.
- The towns of Tulkarm and Qalqilya would remain outside the new state. Their Muslim population would move into the newly formed State, occupying the towns of RAWABI, Ariel, Shiloh?
- This is my proposal. It’s up to the people involved to consider and act on a plan. Playing devil’s advocate, I see the boundary as a smaller circle? However, Ariel and Shiloh still remain to be swapped.
I wish everyone all the best, as both people, create Two States for their two people. Go in Peace and come in Peace. It sounds more authentic in Yiddish. All the best , because I wish Israel the best, that I propose this solution.
As a Jew, our 2 nd choice is the annihilation of the State of Israel as a refuge of the JEWISH people. That choice is not acceptable to me. Nor is a 3 rd choice.
As always, dear readers, I welcome your thoughts and comments. This could be a ” new beginning”!
