While there has been significant public discussion about Palestinian demands in the peace process, there has been little in-depth analysis of Israel's rights and requirements.
This study by leading Israeli security experts presents a comprehensive assessment of Israel's critical security requirements, particularly the need for defensible borders that was enshrined in UN Security Council Resolution 242 and endorsed by past U.S. administrations.
The study also details the key elements of a demilitarized Palestinian state, as was proposed by Prime Minister Netanyahu in 2009.
The vital importance for the defense of Israel of control of the airspace over the West Bank and the risks to Israel of deploying international forces there are also carefully considered.
