Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So you want to let the entire resolution be determined by a group of magic sand people? It is a given that there are irrational and unyielding people on both sides, but they cannot continue to block the desires of everyone else.

That they have so much apparent influence is because they are granted it by those who want to maintain the status quo.

As for those trapped as refugees in other Arab states, the new component that I'm suggesting is giving them a big pot of money. You would be surprised at how the prospect of having a group of people with money to spend alters the attitudes of local officials towards immigrants.
