    Levy is wrong, because war changes settlement patterns. If there is one thing that both sides agree on, it's that this is war. The contiguity argument rests upon a military idea of strategic depth, as a national necessity. But, a future Palestinian state will be demilitarized, so why worrry about military strategy? IMO the small area and the mixed populations on both sides of the Green Line (or any other line), mean that there will never be a clear-cut division of the two peoples. This is a situation that calls out for a more creative solution than the Euro-model national state. Unfortunately, peace and trust are prerequisites for creative thinking.
