Squaring the Circle...

Question:  Too biased. The Israelis might go for it - the novelty alone makes it an idea worth exploring. Not so the Palestinians - and with some justification. Yes, this might lock down the violence - and appreciably so - but to what end? To preserve the status quo? To stifle any movement towards change or progress? Not entirely a welcome outcome where Palestinian interests are concerned.

Answer:  The answer, apparently, is to acknowledge the objection and offer to take the system 'off-line' for one or two months. In that time-slot, the whole question might then be readily referred back to the field of battle - if calmer counsels have not prevailed in the interval.

Personally i think the best outcome would be for the state of israel to swallow the whole palestine. Israel's government is just better than gaza's.
