"...when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth" Sherlock Holmes in the Sign of Four
After a detailed examination of Israel's geo-strategic parameters, its geo-political environment and the indispensible imperatives that arise from these parameters, the analysis proceeds to an assessment of the policy proposals on the table today for the resolution of the Middle East conflict. It will show how the current policy endeavors based on Israeli territorial concessions and the "land-for-peace/two-state" paradigm" are impossible to reconcile with the long-term survival of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. A comprehensive "out of the box" alternative of addressing the major challenges facing Israel is set out accompanied by an appraisal of the conditions required for its implementation and an evaluation of its feasibility and estimation of economic costs it would entail.
