A Modest Proposal To Solve the Palestine-Israel Conflict

by Karl Sabbagh
£10.00   paperback  Skyscraper Publications (2018)

A Modest Proposal To Solve the Palestine-Israel Conflict by Karl Sabbagh The title of this book is ironic. sets out a solution to the Palestine-Israel conflict which is about as immodest as you could get – it will require a huge amount of effort, collaboration, fund-raising and organisation to achieve it. But in Karl Sabbagh's view – and that of an increasing number of informed observers of the Middle East – it may be the only solution that will actually work by bringing peace to the region after a hundred years of mismanagement, cowardice, wishful thinking, and prejudice. ​
The solution is simple to describe – the establishment of a new state between the river Jordan and the Mediterranean in which Palestinians and Jews can live as citizens with equal religious, civil and political rights. This new state will also be open to all Palestinians who were expelled from Palestine in 1948 and 1967 to return home to live. ​
What this book may do is perhaps force people to say “Well, if not this, then what?” Because the one thing that cannot be denied is the right of people to live in the homeland from which they have been expelled. If that right is not achievable for the Palestinians by this “modest proposal” for a single state between the Jordan and the Mediterranean, combined with the right of return for Palestinians, what other option is there?
