Dear Dr Pipes, I do not understand what will happen to the Muslim population living in Israel after the crushing defeat of the Palestine that you have proposed. Islamic wars never end. The moment they lose, they will start pelting stones again.

I have a Debanjan-Banerjee-eque solution but in reverse. Utilizing Islamic generosity, Saudi Arabia should donate about 8900 sq miles of land from its vast and mostly empty land for the Palestinian Muslims. For those who never looked at the map the area of Israel is about 8900 miles and it is about 1% of the total Saudi area. Palestinian Muslims can create a beautiful Islamic homeland for themselves in this donated land.

Such donations of land are not unprecedented. India donated two entire countries to Muslims in 1947.

I would heartily welcome Banerjee's opinion on my beautiful solution.
