    I am trying to envision the implementation of UN General Assembly Resolution 181 in the realistic nature of Israel and the West Bank today. This would pretty much mean that a Palestinian state would be a bi national state if you were to leave residents in place, while the Jewish State will be almost completely Jewish. Under such a plan, Lod, Ramle, BeerSheva, Acco, Nahariyah, Modiin, Ariel, Maaleh Adumim, Mevaseret Tzion, Beitar Illit, Shoham, Maccabim Reut, Shavei Shomron Settelment Block, Nazareth Illit, Carmiel, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Gilo, Beit Shemesh and so many other cities (this does not even include towns), would fall under a Palestian State, while also leaving it predomoninantly Jewish. Now, do you think this is realistic, unless of course you are advocating for the removal of all Jews within these lands? Any agreement for a viable state in the West Bank and Gaza has to provide a corridor, facilitated by Israel. That is why, any unilateral proclomation is useless.
