"If you can NOT make sure a large amount of Arabs will emigrate, not do annex these areas and make these people residents"

I agree. There are large blocs that contain non-citizen Arab Muslims in Israel. From a practical standpoint, they need to not be fully annexed. Neither is it practical, for them to be part of a "state", because these areas are too small for that and not contiguous. Perhaps they could be under joint Israeli-Jordanian or Israeli-Egyptian sovereignty, or remain as "autonomous regions" (as in many other countries) That is the way it SEEMS to me, an outsider. It is something for Israel, Jordan and Egypt to work out.
