The article discusses the issue concerning the Northern Ireland solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It has been stated that the peace process in Northern Ireland had its roots in the Anglo-Irish agreement of 1985, which established the basis for cooperation between Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland towards resolving the conflict. A Northern Ireland solution in the West Bank would go beyond its namesake in envisioning a Palestinian state as the outcome of the process. However, West Bank Forum would be an important intermediate step which is considered a bridge from the present impasses to the future resolution. The author concluded that the Northern Ireland solution may be too great a departure from past plans to have much chance of being implemented by two sides.
