"The solution is simple. The Arab areas should go to the PA with land contiguity. The jewish areas should be annexed to Israel." - HS Both elements are flawed. If by building on occupied territory, a country can gain that territory, loads of countries will be off seizing neighbours' territories at sun up. That is why the Geneva Conventions, which are international law, prohibit gaining territory by force and settling occupied land. The thief cannot keep the spoils or international law is dead in the water. On the practical side, there cannot be both a contiguous Palestine AND a spider's web of settlements and settler roads there ruled by a foreign power. They are mutually exclusive. It would only work if all accepted that Arab Palestine could only be a collection of isolated islands or bantustans. But all except Israel's hardcore right reject this idea absolutely as (a) land theft (b) racist.
