Lion said: "In that case, ban all social media platforms. They are all battlegrounds for propaganda and they always will be. The only question is whether a variety of propaganda will be tolerated and users, who use the platforms voluntarily, will be trusted to use their discernment; or whether all the propaganda will emanate from tightly regulated sources, i.e. from corporate media, central governments, and tech companies, an alliance of extremely powerful entities coming together to curate reality on behalf of the benighted plebians".

How have I not rated Lion in the last 15 years?
Lion is insightful, humble, kind and just a cool dude in general. The Shroomery is fortunate to have him around.

could argue in a mature adult way such as this:

"I think this new state could have something similar, except with rotating positions rather than fixed.  Or some other system could be devised wherein the two halves had parallel governing structures that nonetheless worked together at least through some points of liaison.

There could be no major land redistribution and Palestinians would need to give up the fullness of their right of return ideal, but West Bank settlements would be removed and all borders, airspace, and waterways opened for everyone.  Everyone would enjoy the same rights under the law.  Jerusalem, always a critical point, would be a separate, federated unit, jointly controlled and open to people from either polity, but enjoying a degree of autonomy from both polities, managed with the help of the UN at least in its early years.

Israel could maintain its name and Jewish identity, Palestinians would get the state they desire (if not all of the land they feel they deserve), and there would be over time an organic meshing of the cultures rather than the poisonous isolation that makes both sides continually demonize each other.  Arabs and Jews could grow up speaking Arabic and Hebrew.  The Arabs who currently make up a substantial part of Israel are proof that it is possible.

Whether the jihadists, the right-of-returners, the ultra-Orthodox, the settlers, and the jingoistic Israeli right could ever allow such a two-states-within-a-state idea to take root and flourish in its infancy is another question.  I doubt it, but I also doubt there will be another, better solution that takes shape in my lifetime."
