I would particularly want to hear Christians point of view. Lots of American Christians tend to take Israel’s side because apparently, they are God’s chosen people. But they also say that Jews killed Jesus so that can be a confusing one

This should happen:
1. All of Jerusalem goes to Israel.
2. The rest of the West Bank becomes the country Palestine.
3. The Gaza Strip and most of the Sinai Peninsula become the country of Palestine.
4. Egypt maintains control of all of the Sinai Peninsula that is along the Suez Canal.

I don't know that Egypt would like a Palestinian controlled Gaza.

"Cairo’s ties with Hamas have at times hung by a thread. Egypt [...] continues to enforce a blockade that has devastated the Gazan economy. Hamas is a militant Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, a political Islamic movement banned in Egypt, and Egypt's pro-government media often depict Hamas as a threat. '

Shouldn't Israel and Palestine just be combined into a single secular nation where both peoples are represented in government?



A new captital city could be established to house the government elsewhere and Jerusalem would simply remain a cultiral and religious center for the country. Then maybe the two peoples would stop fighting with each other.

If that were to happen, Israel would lose its Jewish majority.

The problem with that statement, is that both Israelis and Palestinians want Jerusalem to be their capital.

Similar to what happened with Lebanon, it was a Christian majority country but now is Muslim majority, although if it weren’t for the Palestinian refugees and civil war that came out of it with the Christians emigrating in mass, then I think Christians would still hold a slight majority to this day.


In the long term I think it makes most sense for some kind of secular federal state that includes both Israel and Palestine. As long as the people are segregated the two nations will hate each other due to lack of communication between the two. And if the two people start living with one another they will learn that they are both people with similar wants and dreams. Not sure what would be the best path for that, but I think a pilot project of some sort via a sovereign secular city state (probably Jerusalem), and if the project succeeds after say a decade then more and more regions get attached to the new secular state with a neutral name something like the Republic of Canaan or Levant.
