Given the parameters outlined at length by 66 years of continual confrontation, there would appear to be no possibility of any satisfactory solution to this endless conflict between Palestinians and Israelis.
Both sides and all external elements, even those as powerful as the US, EU and UN, seem utterly powerless to effect the changes of mind and heart that will be required.
But has anyone looked for answers inside the most unlikely place of all, there within the conflict itself
No Israeli concessions or sacrifices.
No Palestinian ones either.
No US mediation necessary.
No BDS needed.
No military intervention or oversight by any outside forces.
All that is of a mandatory nature in this arrangement are two items commonly found in every human being:
1. A rudimentary grasp of the very first piece of mathematics any of us ever encounter.
2. A basic appreciation of the law of averages.
By combining both these faculties in one specific application, not only can this contentious Middle East struggle be set on course for rapid closure, others of a similar complexion can also take advantage of the immense power it brings to bear on all manner of disputes and discord.
There now, could it really be any easier?
