IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY February 21st 2017: One-State Confederation

A confederation would try to dodge both issues. Like the two-state solution, it would create two political entities, Israel and Palestine, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. But the citizens of both would enjoy freedom of movement: A Palestinian from Nablus could commute to work in Tel Aviv each day, and vice versa.
 
Israeli settlers could stay in their homes in the West Bank, while a proportionate number of Palestinians could take up residence inside Israel’s pre-1967 borders, affording a limited “right of return.” Jerusalem would be a shared, undivided city. The two governments would share responsibility for overlapping issues, like national defense and infrastructure.
