    The Arab/Palestinian - Israeli conflict is a very clear problem. The clarify of the problem makes it easy to solve it. Israeli is occupying Palestinian lands, Jerusalem, controlling borders, etc. So the problem is about occupation. Then the solution will become straightforward: JUST END THE OCCUPATION. Israel should recognize an independent Palestinian state with a full control over its borders, ground, sky, and sea. Once this is achieved, Pals living outside can go back and live in peace in their home country so their problem is naturally fixed. The delay in the peace process is caused by Israel since it doesn't recognize this right for the Palestinians. There is no need for a peace plan, but rather there is a need to execute the plan and make it real. Any argument made by Israel against this should make the world understand that they are not interested in peace. Recognizing Pals right would ensure peace for everyone. The world should push for this.
