    The Israelis and the Palestinians are impossible to deal with. It's like trying to deal with your kids. 60 years of doing the same thing, Wye, Camp David, Oslo, Wye II, Camp David II, "proximity talks". It's insane! It's time to lean on the parties to submit the Middle East dilemma to Binding Arbitration. Each party picks an arbitrator; the two arbitrators pick a 3rd arbitrator; the parties argue their cases to the three arbitrators; the arbitrators render a decision; majority rules. The UN chips in some money to justly compensate those who lost property when the UN created Israel as a refuge and homeland for Jews who had been persecuted, murdered, enslaved and made homeless by the Germans. The UN gets the money from member states and benefactors. (Maybe the Germans chip in a little extra.) That's my peace plan. It's as good as anything out there!
