ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the "two-state solution" to the Arab-Israeli conflict in Israel. Few Palestinians retain maximalist tendencies (the desire to control the entire land instead of a portion of it). The larger Palestinian growth rate led to support for a one-state solution with Palestinians ruling over a Jewish minority, but the international community had supported a Jewish state with a Jewish majority for almost 100 years. During the last decade, plans for implementing partitions have given rise to the mechanism of land swaps, or the exchanges of sovereignty over territories without the physical transfer of populations.
