The plan allows for the creation of a Palestinian state and the return of Palestinian refugees.

Five years ago Israel rejected the plan but now the Israelis are reacting more positively to it, correspondents say.

in my opinion this is a great idea as it will mean israel is fully recognised as a state by all islamic nations and will have full diplomatic ties with them, this will also mean palistains will have a state and wont have to be refugees in other countries.
this will also mean israelis wont be in fear of being attacked as same goes to palistains from israel
