In the long-term, this set of circumstances can ultimately only lead to one of two things - the creation of a formalised system of unequal separation where Palestinians live in isolated cantonments without basic rights and freedoms or the creation of a bi-national state with equal rights for all citizens regardless of religion and ethnicity.

The second option is the one-state solution.

Despite Jeff's doubts, this is more likely than Israel abandoning the West Bank settlements.

I believe this is the only viable and ethical solution.

I'm sure there is no Arabic Israeli who would rather give up their citizenship and live in Gaza or the West Bank. I would imagine most of those living in the Occupied Territories would much prefer a life as an Israeli citizen.

Apartheid or Unity.
