Re: Palestine Alright... I've been giving this matter a bit more thought and time in the last few days. We could do a lot of fingerpointing and replaying the moves of the past. The fact of the matter is that I am mostly concerned about the future. It appears that there are three ways out of the issue. First of all, there is the two-state solution, as outlined by for instance the 1993 Oslo agreement. Peaceful or, at least, cordial coexsistance means the ellimination of Jewish settlements in the West Bank. It probably also needs Jerusalem to be split up into two capitals. Then, there is the de-facto Jewish control with apartheid measures such as is more or less the case as it stands. It would mean a continued lingering intifada - or an extremely severe suppression of the Palestinians. Lastly, and there is some talk about this recently, the one-party solution in which Palestinians and Israelis would inhabit the same state with equal, democratic rights for all citizens. Let's call this the South African option. Soooo... which solution would favour the various debators?
