I agree with Alpha 1.
But hey, wasnt Clancies "elegant solution" like a nuclear bomb destroying the entire MidEast or something?
Your "Pallestine" is pronounced Pa-yeah-i-stine, which is quite humorous.
Correct spelling for the former name of the territory that is Israel and is currently occupied by Israel is "Palestine", pronounced: palace-tine.
A complete separation is extraordinarily difficult for several reasons.
1) Settlements. Thousands of Jews and Israelis live in settlements outside the "green line" which would be classed in a modern form of Palestine. Would Israel simply give up on these people? Not likely. Would Palestine welcome them to their new nation? Not likely. Would Palestine allow them to be islands of Zion inside their supposed soverign territory? Not likely.
2) Refugrees. Thousands of Palestinians (although the use of the word is wrongly used because before 1948, Jews in the region were "Palestinians" also) or Arab Palestinians fled modern day Israel because of fears they would be killed or tortured. They are currently housed in camps in Lebanon and Jordan and want their land back. Israel will not allow them to have it because this would mean certain near destruction of the identity of the Jewish state and raise the likelihood of increased terror from angry refugees attempting to seek vengeance. Will the refugees happily move to this new Palestine and abandon their claims? Not likely. Will Israel allow them all back to Israel? Not likely.
3) Economy. In case you haven't noticed, what is currently Palestine has no economy. Well, thats a bit overstated. Palestine has no significant industry or commerce and better than 70% of its inhabitants rely on Israel for jobs and welfare. Completely separating Palestine from Israel will require billions of dollars to build a commercial society from traders markets, a shut airport, several mortar factories, and a casino limited solely to Israeli holidaymakers. Will Israel lend Palestine the money to become self-sufficient? Not likely. Will rich Arab nations lend Palestine the money to become self-sufficient? If past is any predictor, not likely. Will Palestine simply build a society capable of creating jobs and investment with monies from the UN?
Not likely, but certainly ideal!
4) Jerusalem. This one is simple. Israel wants it. Palestine wants it. Neither is gonna say, "I'll trade you a goat and two barrels of....."
You get the point.
Solution: Make peace. (only option)
PS: It is the view of this Airliner, that peace will come. It will take time and lives, but I refuse to believe that Israelis and Arabs, two very strong-willed but highly intelligent peoples who thrive dealmaking and bargaining, will never make peace. With today's events, peace may seem far and hopeless.... but hold your breath, its coming.
