    Have we not witnessed mostly the rise of independent countries throughout the world who yearned to be sovereign nations based on their own cultural identities, controlling their own resources and market economies and preferring the democratic socio-political structure? The West Bank settlements comprising of approximately 3 - 4% of territory conquered in the 1967 Six Days War, have always been argued as not being the determining factor against a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The predominant issue throughout the last 20 years has been the security issues and trust of accepting a Jewish State within the Middle East. How can the demographic trend of an increasing Palestinian population in the Greater Israel region (the West Bank) not pose national and cultural inequities if neither nation wants to embrace one anothers' civil and religious jurisdictions in every sphere of their existence ? Being inclusive and co-existing alongside one another does not mean one nation controls the other, but rather collaborating on the joint interests of importance, eg. education, tourism, health and science, technology, etc. Neither proud peoples would be willing to dissolve into a one-state resolution.
