Dr. Pipes,

You state that "Israel's "final enemy" may finally, be joining the battle. The consequences of this for the Arab-Israeli conflict as a whole could well be profound."

What are your proposed solutions to this issue? Perhaps Lieberman's party winning so many seats may cause the Israeli Arabs to realize that they would be better off living alongside the Jews in Israel then being stripped of benefits and citizenship. are there any solutions that you have to these problems you mention?

Daniel Pipes replies:

Good question. My basic solution is geographic flexibility. There is nothing sacrosanct about the 1949 armistice lines. Once the external Palestinians really do end their war to eliminate Israel, I see creative boundaries taking care of much of the Israeli Arab problem.
