What are the security requirements for a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine?
Vardiman, Daniel P.
MetadataShow full item record
A two-state solution between Israel and Palestine requires guaranteed security for both nations, as well as commitments from surrounding nations and a cooperation of effort to prevent radical elements within society from disrupting what the majority desire, peace. This thesis will attempt to review the security conditions, as spelled out in the Oslo peace process, and concludes that the greatest failure was the approach. Oslo attempted to build up to a final solution through "confidence-building measures." Because the final status was nebulous, both sides postured and set polices that worked against a two-state solution. Had the borders been set and agreed to from the start, the "confidence-building measures" would have worked in favor of a two-state solution instead of against it. To prove the necessity of setting a border first, this thesis, through the use of geographic threat considerations, will conduct an Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace (IPB) analysis. An IPB is an intelligence tool used to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of any campaign. This thesis hopes to show that setting a border first, and then working backwards through the "confidence-building measures," will lead to a greater chance for peace.
