What are the solutions to the Israel Palestine conflict?

What started as intercommunal violence between Israelis and Arabs in the 1920s evolved over the course of the twentieth century into a full-blown civil war and open conflict. After much bloodshed and the dawn of a new century, what would a solution to the Israel-Palestine situation look like? Is peace even a possibility for one of the world's longest-running conflicts?

A one-state solution to the Israel Palestine Conflict

Israelis and Palestinians must be united under a single, binational state. Both Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs would enjoy the same legal and civil rights and live under a government in which both religions are represented.

A one-state solution solves border issues in Israel Palestine

A one-state solution is essential for avoiding drawing up unpopular and divisive borders.

No progress has been made on a two-state solution

Negotiations on a two-state solution have proven ineffective. It is time to change tact and explore one-state options.

A one-state solution has agreeable to demands on both sides

The Palestinians want to access and control the entirety of Israel, and Israel wants to be the sole policy determinant in the 'state'. Where both Palestinians and Israelis are voters and equal citizens, both autonomy and access are provided to all peoples.

A two-state solution to the Israel Palestine Conflict

There must be two separate, independent states, one Israeli and one Palestinian, each with its own government and full autonomy over its domestic and international affairs.

A two-state solution takes into account natural homelands

Both Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Jews would be able to establish a natural homeland. This would respect the nationalist feelings in the region and create an opportunity for equal and shared existence in the Holy Land.

A two-state solution is the most popular outcome

A two-state solution is the most popular outcome for those living in the region.

There are already logical borders in Israel Palestine

The June 4, 1967 border divisions with agreed land swaps clearly define Israeli and Palestinian territory.

Right of return in Israel Palestine

A two-state solution would solve the issue of Palestinian refugees who wish to return to their homeland.

Israeli-Palestinian confederation solution to the Israel Palestine Conflict

Israel and Palestine would form a mini-EU. Under the terms of the bloc, each state would have its own government but both governments would cooperate on economic, security, environmental and natural resource matters.

Everyone can stay where they are in Israel Palestine

Under a confederation, nobody would need to relocate. If Israel and Palestine formed a united government, while maintaining their separate identities, they could coexist peacefully. Both states would stay where they are and allow citizens to easily travel between the two states.

Autonomy plus solution to the Israel Palestine Conflict

Autonomy plus would allow Palestinians the freedom to control their own local governments and schools but within the state of Israel.

Palestine can govern itself within an Israeli state

Autonomy plus is a solution where Israel gives Palestine independence, but not statehood, within the region. Essentially, the Palestinians would have some but not total freedom.

There is no solution to the Israel Palestine conflict

The political objectives of both sides, coupled with the current political climate, mean that no solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict is available.

No solution to the Israel Palestine conflict because there is no trust

Without trust, neither side can negotiate for a lasting solution to the conflict.

Internal Palestinian divisions block a solution to Israel Palestine conflict

Internal divisions among Palestinians make negotiations impossible.

No Israeli incentive to find solution to Israel Palestine conflict

On the Israeli side, there is little incentive to secure a solution to the conflict.

The US is not a viable peace broker for the Israel Palestine conflict

The US is one of the few nations capable of brokering peace but it is not willing to do so.
