    1. Idea for the Palestinians: Some settlers say that they will remain in their settlements even if they are turned over to Palestine. Fine, accept such settlements in your territory. They will start declining right away (with residents escaping) when they get no assistance from Palestine government for teachers etc until they are brought to the level of Arab schools. Likewise, water, electricity and other services. Even better, don't offer immunity for crimes the settlers committed against Arabs. Many will end up in jail, so give them the option to disappear. The PROBLEM: The settlers say anything that would prevent Israel from giving up the settlements. They will OBJECT to this creative idea once it seems acceptable, claiming they are being abandoned./// 2. Idea for Israel: Just before Passover, spread a lot of Hametz (bread, etc) over the settlements. Can be done from the air. The settlers will have to sell the settlement to a goy (Arab) for Pesach (of course very cheaply, since he is expected to sell it back after the holiday). After the holiday, the Arab should refuse to sell it back. The settlers' rabbis recognize the sale as valid. End of story. (Note: Better that the government should do the sale, but under the supervision of a settler grand rabbi.)
