    DescriptionA manifesto that exposes the flaws in the two-state policy of the United States toward Israel and the Palestinians and offers a direct and powerful call for Israeli sovereignty in the region. The reigning consensus in elite and academic circles is that the United States must seek to resolve the Palestinians' conflict with Israel by implementing the so-called two-state solution. Establishing a Palestinian state, so the thinking goes, would be a panacea for all the region's ills. It would end the Arab world's conflict with Israel, because the reason the Arab world is anti-Israel is that there is no Palestinian state. It would also nearly erase the principal cause of the violent extremism in the rest of the Middle East. In a time when American politics are marked by partisan gridlock, the two-state solution stands out for its ability to attract supporters from both sides of the ideological divide. But the great irony is that it is one of the most irrational and failed policies the United States has ever adopted. Between 1970 and 2013, the United States presented nine different peace plans for Israel and the Palestinians, and for the past twenty years, the two state solution has been the centerpiece of U.S. Middle East policy. But despite this laser focus, American efforts to implement a two-state peace deal have failed--and with each new attempt, the Middle East has become less stable, more violent, more radicalized, and more inimical to democratic values and interests. In "The Israeli Solution," Caroline Glick, senior contributing editor to the "Jerusalem Post," examines the history and misconceptions behind the two-state policy, most notably: - The huge errors made in counting the actual numbers of Jews and Arabs in the region. The 1997 Palestinian Census, upon which most two-state policy is based, wildly exaggerated the numbers of Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza. - Neglect of the long history of Palestinian anti-Semitism, refusal to negotiate in good faith, terrorism, and denial of Israel's right to exist. - Disregard for Israel's stronger claims to territorial sovereignty under international law, as well as the long history of Jewish presence in the region. - Indifference to polling data that shows the Palestinian people admire Israeli society and governance. Despite a half-century of domestic and international terrorism, anti-semitism, and military attacks from regional neighbors who reject its right to exist, Israel has thrived as the Middle East's lone democracy. After a century spent chasing a two-state policy that hasn't brought the Israelis and Palestinians any closer to peace, "The Israeli Solution" offers an alternative path to stability in the Middle East based on Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.

    Review quote
    "Even those who blanch at the thought of Israel annexing the West Bank can learn from the points Glick makes...Glick has brought out her book at an amazing moment, sketching what many will see as a better route toward peace and in the nick of time." -New York Post "Devotees of the two-state solution will surely dismiss Caroline Glick's "The Israeli Solution" out of hand. They shouldn't. Whether or not one agrees with Glick's conclusions, it's hard to dispute her premise: The two-state solution has failed repeatedly for more than 80 years, starting with serial British partition plans in the 1930s. Each time, it has foundered on the same obstacle: Arab rejection of the Jewish state's right to exist within any borders. And there's no reason to think this will change anytime soon. So anyone who truly considers the status quo unsustainable needs to explore alternative solutions." -"Commentary " "If you read only one book about the Middle East this year, it should be Caroline Glick's. Whether or not you agree with her conclusions, she illuminates the contorted landscape by pointing to an audacious solution. It is only by considering alternative actions that we understand our present circumstances, and Ms Glick concentrates the mind wonderfully." "-Asia Times" "A radical proposal advanced in time's nick for those who doubt the framework Secretary of State Kerry is seeking for talks about a two-state solution. [Glick] lays the arguments out beautifully, and her plan deserves attention on Capitol Hill." "-New York Sun" "The most comprehensive and articulate defense of what the Israeli position is that I have ever seen." -Pat Robertson, "The 700 Club" "A radical break with current thinking that has a chance to completely change the conversation for the betterment of Israel and America...Glick proposes that given an enemy that has been dedicated to nothing less than the annihilation of Israel, in order to defend its borders and continue tog
