20 years of US supported peace talks have gone nowhere. All the while, Israel has been building settlements like crazy. A good analogy is you cannot argue who gets how much of a pizza, when one party is gobbling up the pizza as fast as they can. The only state the Palestinians will have left is one filled with Jewish settlements and Israeli checkpoints, with most of the water rights in the hands of the Israelis.
It will be violent, and it will take time, but a one state solution is the only viable path left. Jews and Arabs lived in relative peace once, they can do it again.
Expecting the Israelis and the Palestinians to just drop all of there differences and become one country where they can live in peace is something of an impossible expectation let alone a possible solution. They would constantly be fighting over which country's practices would be in control as well as who controlled the government.
No. A one-state solution will not ease tensions between the Israeli and Palestinian governments. War and overall tension has been a part of every day life for both Israel and Palestine for the last 2,000 years. A one-state solution would simply raise the level of tension between these two countries.
No, a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not a good idea, because a one-state solution would not offer real peace. With a one-state solution, both sides would feel as though they are being slighted. With continuing discontent, there would never be any true peace. There would be constant civil wars in an effort to obtain power.
