Security / Regional Security
Perhaps most importantly, a two-state solution could transform Israel’s regional security position by ending the conflict with its Arab neighbor states.
Through the Arab Peace Initiative (API), all 22 members of the Arab League, and 57 members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, have committed to normalizing relations with Israel following an Israeli-Palestinian agreement. Regional normalization could cement the growing security ties between Israel and
the Gulf states, and present many new opportunities, including joint missile-defense, intelligence sharing, joint military training and operations, and cooperation against Iran, Islamic extremism and other common threats.
While the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not the cause of chaos in the Middle East, its resolution would likely weaken extremists, strengthen moderates throughout the region, and advance U.S. strategic interests as well.
