    A two state solution on the small land of Israel would be disastrous for both people and insure that the conflict never ends. Yes, Arabs in Eastern Israel deserve civil autonomy, but we cannot allow the land to be cleansed of Jews as this would invite Hamas terrorist to move in as we saw in Gaza. The Arabs in Israel can receive permanent residency, and vote in Palestinian-Jordan elections. The Palestinians can have a local government leader in Ramallah and a representative in Amman (most Palestinians are Jordanian citizens). The three entities can form a federation Israel-Jordan-Palestine and work together. The Arabs will be able to work freely and travel throughout Israel and Israelis will be able to work and travel in Jordan-Palestine. This is a solution for a lasting peace with Israel-Jordan-Palestine combating terrorism allowing for lasting stability and peace. Extremist on both sides must be reined in. Israel will handle security in areas A, and B and Arabs in Area C. This is the frame work for true peace. A federation of two peoples working as one.
