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?

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.
