Introduction

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is probably the single gravest problem in Israeli external politics, at present. (and naturally of Palestinian external politics) So far its solution eluded the minds of most politicians of both sides. This article will propose just that, for both sides.

One editorial note: “Palestinians” in the context of this article are the Palestinian Arabs who live in the west-bank and Gaza. I do not refer by it to the other members of the Palestinian people living outside the occupied territories. (unless explicitly said otherwise)

(Note that this article is based on an older and unofficial essay that the author of these line wrote in his online diary. Its content is still relevant, but otherwise superseded by this essay. )
