A Real Peace Plan
Now here is a Middle East peace plan that I can get behind. Shalom Freedman advocates a true two state solution: Israel and Jordan. He does not specify political borders for the two nations, but he says that Israel would have "security control" over everything west of the Jordan River and Jordan would have security control on the East Bank. Any Arabs in the West Bank or Gaza could become citizens of Jordan, but they would not be evicted from their homes. They could continue to live, under Israeli control, in the West Bank. Each state would control it's own borders. It really is a good plan. Of course, no Arabs will accept it until much more blood is shed. Sigh.
