A solution for the Middle East

The solution in the Middle East is not separatism - but integration.
The Likud's rejection of Palestinian statehood was a start. Now they need to take a more courageous step and reject Jewish statehood.

Separatism is the problem - not the solution. Israel needs to open its borders -
embrace the right of return for the Palestinian people, welcome them into their
society, and institute a policy of affirmative action designed to give the Palestinians equal status in their former homeland. In short Israel has to reject the racist theology on which it is founded.

When Israel reflects the racial, and religious composition of the Middle East then it will no longer be "surrounded by enemies," because the Israelis and Arabs will have become one.

Integration was the solution for South Africa, Serbia, and the University of Alabama. It can work for Israel in the 21st century.
