    If Palestine-Israel is fairly divided with free access to crisscross 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 choose citizenship or residency in Palestine. Israel can keep some of the peripheral 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 up, 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 .
