Since it seems the current US Administration and the now-forming right-wing government in Israel have both agreed that the “two-state solution has failed,” to quote Jared Kushner, I’ve taken it upon myself to come up with my own “deal of the century.”
I propose the establishment of a new federated single state that hearkens back to the original territory that comprised the British Mandate following World War I. The Federation of the Levant will consist of 3 states, which will be independent and interdependent.
The 3 federated states will be:
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
The State of Palestine
The State of Israel
A special status will apply to the Municipality of Jerusalem / Al Quds.
This proposal will address the following issues:
- Federal and State Governments and their Powers
- State Borders
- Rights of Residency
- Freedom of Movement
- Freedom of Religion and Conscience
- Military Defense
