economic and social devide between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, a split that is a permanent phenomenon, and the sooner we realized it the better. And once internalized, the world, and particularly the Arab world, must prepare itself for a true solution to the Paelstinian question: Jordan should gradually take over most of the western bank while Egypt the Gaza Strip. These two countries, already having functioning peace agreements with Israel, should then extend full citizenship to the residents of these territories respectively, to Arabs and Jews alike, and begin settling some of them in the under populated eastern bank of the Jordan River and the Sinai Peninsula. With the proper package of incentives and assistance from the Arab world, the international community and Israel there is finally a high probability of solving the Palestinian question. Do we have the will to resolove the conflict and bring about an accomodation of peaceful co-existence between Arab and Jew?
