What are the solutions to the Israel Palestine conflict? Show more Show less

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 two-state solution Show more Show less

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.

The people living in the region should have the biggest say over any potential solution. Amongst the Israeli and Palestinian public, the majority support a two-state solution.

The Argument

A Haaretz poll revealed that around 33% of Israelis are in favour of a two-state solution. By contrast, only 19% would support a one-state solution and 9% support a confederation.[1] Among Palestinians, support for a two-state solution sits at around 43%.[2]
