Squaring the Circle...

Question:  Wouldn't it be imperative to obtain at least tacit approval from both principals in this matter? Given the longstanding enmity between them, acceptance of so radical a departure from familiar norms and customs of warfare seems doubtful in the extreme.

Answer:  Curiously enough, agreement on the issue need not be a mandatory requirement here. In fact, both parties could initially ignore the whole procedure and continue on much as before. However, there comes a time when the areas of land so designated must reach something of a critical mass. At such a point, one side or the other might very well decide to go with what's on offer. Holding such clear and universal title to any major tract of this much disputed territory might prove progressively more and more difficult to resist. Thereafter, further violence becomes increasingly untenable. Fighting against a conventional enemy is all very well - but when that enemy is also a mathematical construct, the numbers themselves soon begin to outweigh all other considerations.

They were also given a prison.

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.
