The "two state solution" model would turn Israel into a sort of Macedonia or Albania model: a small ethnic nation state where the majority belongs to a given ethnicity and/or religion, speaks a national language, with ethnic or religious minorities as full citizens. However, Israel is rapidly departing from this model and may turn (once the current status quo is gone) into a Lebanon-like ensemble of ethnic and religious communities. The Lebanese model looks superficially like a binary Christian/Muslim duality, but it is far more complex because Christians and Muslims are subdivided in several sects. All these elements are present in Israel/Palestine. Superficially it is a Jewish/Arab duality, but Jews and Arabs are also subdivided, and Israel may very well end up being a sort of Lebanon. Being located ion the Middle East may explain why Israel is evolving into a Middle East type of country.
