Dr. Grenville Phillips II takes a new approach to solving the Arab-Israeli conflict by resolving the underlying religious causes of the conflict that prevented both sides from negotiating in good faith.
Over the past fifty years, proposals to end the Arab-Israeli conflict have specified one or both of the following 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.
Islamic and Jewish political leaders understood that accepting these pre-conditions violated the following essential aspects of Islamic and Jewish religious traditions.
1. Mohammed's final command that only one religion must occupy the Arabian Peninsula.
2. Moses' final command that the Israelites must occupy their God-given inheritance, which includes Gaza and the West Bank.
Until this complex equation is solved, Jewish and Islamic political leaders must negotiate in bad faith to avoid the fatal consequences of making unpopular decisions. Solving the Arab-Israeli Conflict resolves the conflicting religious issues with the pre-conditions to allow the political leaders to negotiate in good faith.
