Israel and Palestine: Achieving a Two-State Solution

1/6/2014; 57 minutes

Using specially commissioned interactive maps to display alternative solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, David Makovsky and Ghaith al-Omari argue that a two-state solution based on land-swaps is the only viable one for the future. The core principle of these swaps is to reconcile the Palestinian demand for a return to the pre-1967 lines with Israel's desire to include as many of the West Bank's 300,000 settlers in Israel proper as possible. They argue that any feasible scenario must include Israel's granting Palestinians arable land from within Israel's pre-1967 border in exchange for annexed settlement blocs (clusters of settlements) and that it is essential that, for any land annexed by Israel as part of a deal, Palestinians receive equal amounts of land. David Makovsky is the Director of the Project on the Middle East Peace Process at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Ghaith al-Omari is the Executive Director of the American Task Force on Palestine. (#24895)
