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.

And, as in most prisons, it is generally accepted that many of the inmates seek to break out by whatever means are available.

Yes well they were given Gaza. They promised to make it into another Singapore. Instead another hell on earth.

Are you implying that mankind should stick with a formula that's 2000 years old? Human survival is linked to its evolution; new and not old methods are needed

UN has done that repeatedly. Israel will have to be driven out by force of violence as the Romans did. Their 2000 year solution beats your fantasy every time.
