    If Palestine-Israel is fairly divided with free access to criss-cross between perforated state lines then it can work . The Arab triangle next to the N West Bank and parts of the Galilee ( including Nazareth ) will be part of Palestine , assigning 800,000 Israeli Palestinians the right to chose citizenship or residency in Palestine . Israel can keep some of the periferical settlements ( Paying compensation ) while the remaining would have the right to citizenship or residency in Palestine , The remaining Israeli Palestinians have the right to switch to Palestinian citizenship and maintain permanent residency in Israel . Jerusalem Is shared . Palestinian refugees have the right to settle in Palestine and a few are aloud to be residents of Israel. Open boarders co-existing yet separated . Each will have 90 % majority in their respecting state . The minorities have to be protected and since they exist on both sides its easier to respect . Israelis need to come to realize that the majority of the Palestinian people were maneuvered ( being polite ) into leaving their homes . Its time to rise and accept a fair deal , a new modern version of the 1947 partition plan . If not then it is a weird and ugly one state . The distinction of Citizen and resident has to be clearly defined . I am a Palestinian and my children and grand children will resist until fairness and mutual respect is dealt out .
