Getting terror and counter terror understood will go a long way toward stopping the killing of each other's children, whether with warplanes accidentally in great numbers, or intentionally by random rockets or by making oneself into a human bomb to explode in suicidal retaliation.

In a hopefully not to distant future the two populations of Palestine will again recognize and appreciate each other's uniqueness, nobility and charm, as these two kindred peoples, did over centuries living next to each other as neighbors in their Middle East.

Now the sides are unevenly matched, with the European settlers far and away on top in every way, but there were centuries when Arabs were the technologically, militarily and culturally advanced civilization doing the conquering. Arabs introduced, to a  Europe in the dark ages, the classical literature and philosophy of its Greek provinces that would spark Europe's Renaissance. Couldn't first world Jews in Israel be leading a Middle East Renaissance of technology?

Since there were those times during the Christian persecution of Jews when Arabs came their rescue, now when the Jews are now the stronger, might it not be a propitious moment for some pay back. To Use that power the U.S. gave Israel to do good things for the Palestinians. Share with them Israel's greatness. Allow them to prosper, allow them to be happy. Use the billions of dollars for weapons to pay well any Palestinian who will accept selling his land, and begin to give back the land to those who fled in terror in "47, or make restitution to their families.
.
Were Israel truly free, it would do this, in the long run, for its own benefit as well. Some of us have faith that Israel will someday be free, free from being forced to serve a global financial-military conspiracy that threatens all of us with  privation and wars.

Having reviewed some truths that have been so fastidiously swept under the rug and forgotten or made inconvenient to remember, we turn, for happier thoughts in closing, to what well might have been, and finally, to what must eventually come to be, if the ever accumulating injustice, violence, hatred and homicide is to cease.

Part 3: IMAGINING

Let us seriously imagine that instead of the partition, which barely won UN approval, a  plan that called for a single democratic state had won UN enactment.

The UN never reached a unanimous conclusion for partition. A strong minority had felt that nothing in the terms of the postwar treaties and the mandate precluded the establishment in Palestine of a Jewish state denominated along the lines of a 'domestic dependent nation. [11]

Also, the wording in Balfour's 1917 letter, "His Majesty's government" views with favor a national home for the Jewish people," brought forth "The conclusion seems to be inescapable that the vagueness in the wording of both instruments was intentional. The term "National Home" was employed, not "State" or "Commonwealth." [12] 

"There were, as well, important preliminary legal questions regarding the competence of the United Nations or its members to enforce a solution against the wishes of the majority of the existing population." The Colombian delegate had led this argument.[12]

Why was Balfour letter to Zionist organizations interpreted perforce to mean a completely separate state? Swiss Germans and Swiss French both have a home state within a larger single state. Not all that complicated, and eminently peaceful.

There could have been no bloodshed at all. If the U.S. and the hard line Zionist lobby had failed to push and pressure through partition, the British Mandate Government would not have fled irresponsibly in cowardly complicity, before the fully expected outbreak of bloody violence. Britain had announced it would accept the partition plan, but refused to enforce it, arguing it was not acceptable to both sides! [13 ]

A UN transition trusteeship would have to the establishment of a single democratic state, not frenetically in haste, but with calm deliberation in which all parties would have had participation. Menachem Begin's faction would of have held fast to the goal for somehow eventually arranging a separate Jewish political entity, but the stronger socialist faction Zionists, with its strong vibrant pioneering spirit among the Kibbutzim etc., would have worked to make a Jewish homeland within a new state of Israel-Palestine (Arabs going along with Israel-Palestine rather than Palestine-Israel out of respect for the ancient Kingdom of David and Solomon of the Bible described with reverence in the Qu'ran antedating Arab ancestors' arrival in the 7th century)

The partition plan made provision for a continuing influx of Jewish settlers. The UN interim authority would have surely also done so. As the constitution of the state was being planned, Arab opposition to substantial Jewish immigration would have been overcome by compensating factors of new wealth and investments coming in from abroad in support of  Palestine Jewry building a better country for everyone.

Jews would have had the access to the entire Mandate of Palestine that militant Biblical devotees now seek  encroaching kilometer by kilometer on what islands of land is presently left for the Arabs to call home - a blockaded and occupied home, at that.

In this kind of imagined format, how easy it might have been for Yehudi Menuhin's "only possible solution" to have developed , namely, the kind of federated republic that is French-German Switzerland (the Italian part comparable to Druze and Bedouin autonomous areas).
