    67 Borders with minor land swaps. Split jerusalem with guarantees of religious access to both sides. Settlements designed to kill pal state like ariel must go. Settlements that don't block contiguous Palestine can stay with land swaps. Normalisation between Israel and arab states. De-militarised Palestine. Ror minimal return to israel, most refugees take former settler homes in palestine. Joint comitees to stop incitement joint projects to encourage neighbourly relations - reconciliation. The big problem is gaza. Here's my suggestion. Israel keeps the blockade but only for weapons, food and aid is let through after checking, Israel maintains border control until Hamas or whoever is in power agrees to join new pal state and stop violence. This should be written into the peace deal as a future option that Israel cannot renege on. Obviously Hamas would first have to do a lot of the work the PA has done building state, countering terror. Once that is done they can join. Once gazans see west bank pals building their state they will want some of that sweet action.
