The Only Logical, Legal Way to End the "Occupation" sic is to Declare Israeli Sovereignty on all of the Land liberated in the miraculous 1967 Six Days War.
There is nothing immoral in a multicultural country, which Israel is. The only thing immoral is the lack of Israeli sovereignty on the Land that miraculously was was liberated in a war of self-defense. Israel, foolishly IMHO had no plans to conquer the Land that had been stolen from the legally promised Jewish State more than a generation earlier.
The original international promise that the Jewish Biblical Homeland would become a state was certified in the Balfour Declaration in 1917.
After that, the British began to backtrack, and now almost a hundred years later, the British Government is among the leaders of those that do all in their power to force Israel to support an Arab terror state in the heart of the Land of Israel.
The backtracking has been more than diplomatic. In 1921 Great Britain transplanted the Arabian Hashemites to the eastern side of the Jordan River and invented a new country, Jordan.
Hashemites, from the Arabic Hasimi (هاشمي), are descendants of the ancient Banu Hahsim, or the Clan of Hashim, a large branch of the Quraysh Tribe of Mecca in the Arabian Peninsula. Hashemites trace their origin to Hashim ibn Abd al-Manaf, who died in c.510 AD, more than a century before the advent of Islam. He was reportedly the great grandfather of the Prophet Muhammad.The Hashemites are the real occupiers in this part of the world. They don't belong here at all.
Today, the Hashemites are best known as the rulers of Jordan. They had ruled the Arabian Peninsula until they were driven out by the more religiously austere Wahhabi-backed Saud family with the fall of the Ottoman Empire. In April 1921, Abdullah ibn Hussayn negotiated with then-colonial secretary Winston Churchill to be the administrator of British-occupied Trans-Jordan (present-day Jordan), thus removing Trans-Jordan from the implications of the Balfour Declaration.
Israel's delaying the application of sovereignty is the cause of the uncertainty, lack of stability we suffer from. Arabs living here don't know what to make of it and therefore find themselves supporting the terrorists, because there is no real alternative. There's a vacuum. In places where Israel is firmly and legally sovereign it's much safer for all, and that includes Arabs. The standard of living is higher for Arabs where Israel is fully sovereign. That's why Arabs are happy to work for minimum wage in places like Sha'ar Binyamin, rather than in the Arab towns and cities nearby. An Arab woman, an English Teacher spoke to me at my job in Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin, and told me of the pitifully low salaries given to teachers in Jenin and Shechem. They are much lower than the Israeli minimum wage.
We've all heard of how Arabs will do anything to get into Israeli hospitals, because our health care is better, the best in the middle east.
Not only Jews, but Arabs, too, will benefit from Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.
