Over the past 40 years, proposals to end the Arab-Israeli conflict
have generally specified the following two pre-conditions. 1. The
Islamic nations must recognize Israel's right to exist in peace in
the region. 2. Israel must return the Gaza and West Bank areas.
These pre-conditions appear to conflict with the following aspects
of Islamic and Jewish religious traditions. 1. Mohammed's final
command that only one religion must occupy the Arabian Peninsula;
therefore, the Jews must leave. 2. Moses' final command that the
Israelites must occupy the Promised land, which includes Gaza and
the West Bank; therefore, the Arabs must leave. Previous proposals
have largely ignored these religious traditions and have sought to
apply political solutions to the symptoms of these religious
issues. Islamic and Jewish political leaders are well aware that
accepting their pre-condition would violate critical aspects of
their respective religious traditions. Therefore, both sides appear
to have negotiated in bad-faith in order to avoid the fatal
consequences of making unpopular decisions. Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin are reported
to have been assassinated, because they were the first national
leaders to formally accept the pre-conditions. Until the religious
issues are resolved, the Jewish and Islamic political leaders are
essentially being forced to negotiate a compromise solution in
bad-faith, because they are well aware that their respective
populations will never agree to the negotiated terms. Walter

resolves the religious issues and proposes an equitable political
