Israelis won't propose it. Nor have Palestinians. Israel wants all valued parts of Judea and Samaria it wishes. It wants Jerusalem as its exclusive capital.
Ideally, it wants Palestinians gone. At best, they'll be tolerated with no rights within isolated cantons on worthless scrubland.
Refugees wanting to return will be denied. Persecution will continue. Palestinians and Israeli Arabs will be targeted. Conflict resolution won't happen. Conditions will get progressively worse.
Israel wants permanent occupation legalized. Palestinians deserve long denied liberation. Democratic legitimacy requires one nation for all its people, irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity, or other differentiating characteristics.
It requires equal rights, observance of international law principles, and ending decades of occupation, colonization and apartheid.
It requires prohibiting what's no longer tolerable and never was. It requires treating Arabs and Jews equally. It requires establishing binding statutes mandating it. It requires enforcing them. It requires commitment to do the right thing.
It won't happen without committed international support. It's high time long-suffering Palestinians got it. Nothing less is tolerable.
