Two other ideas are counterweights;

a.  Israel has an existential impossible Gordian knot:  Arab-Israeli citizens are given "equal" civil rights in a system that cannot tolerate Arab-Israelis at the pinnacle of government.  I don't like it one bit but there is a time-tested system of ethics that assumes that we cannot expect reality to bend to our wishes.  How does Israel preserve itself as a Jewish state and give Arab Israelis full equality in leadership?

b.  Palestinians need to propose a brilliant deal.  Can't the Palestinians be smart enough to propose a compelling deal to get peace?

Israel will now be letting Rashida visit her 90 year old grandmother in the Palestinian territories.

I hope the Palestinians can bring some wise negotiators to work a deal.  Maybe give up insistence on getting exclusive access to the historic holy sights

in exchange for peace and prosperity.   And...still get access to the holy sites but on a shared basis.

what happened to freedom of speech and democracy?  To restore it, step one is to get rid of Netanyahu and his entire staff.  They bought an entire media network to spread their garbage, like Fox News is for Trump.

How similar is that system to what apartheid was in South Africa?
