What the author is suggesting is simple justice. The Palestinian State would have a Jewish minority, just as the Jewish State has a minority of Israeli Arabs. It would force all parties to forego extremism. And the Jewish people have historically existed and in some ways thrived as minority populations in foreign lands. Who knows what will happen over the next century or centuries, but maybe in a situation like this, the Jewish minority in a Palestinian State could eventually serve as a bulwark for the eventual re-unification of Israel and Palestine. But for now, this is a totally realistic plan. It seems to me hypocritical for the largely observant Jewish community of settlers to expect that a Jewish government they largely view as heretical, with an IDF that routinely operates on Shabbat, to be their constant protector in an occupied land. And besides, if a real threat of mass murder from the Palestinian government were to arise, the IDF would be quick to respond.
