The PEIS Plan:

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is deemed the most intractable conflict in modern times: Every plan since the mid-20th century comes to dead ends. This book introduces a novel solution that can resolve this conflict once and for all. The "deus ex machina" in this book is the introduction of the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt would sell the "bad" part of the Sinai Peninsula to the Palestinians; the Palestinians would combine that purchase with the Gaza Strip to create a contiguous, two-seas-access new nation alongside Israel but 50% bigger; the Israelis would purchase the West Bank from the Palestinians to achieve their yearn for the "Land of Israel", and give the Palestinians the means to purchase their portion of the Sinai Peninsula.

The PEIS Plan stands for the Palestine-Egypt-Israel-Sinai peace plan.

This book summarizes the current conflict, describes the solution, and explains why the Egyptians, Palestinians, Israelis, and the other parties in the conflict such as the Bedouins and Islamic insurgents, should welcome the PEIS Plan, and how the PEIS Plan, in one stroke, would resolve the status of Jerusalem, the right of return of the Palestinian diaspora, the feud between Hamas and the Palestinian Administration, the Sinai insurgency against Egypt, and how Israel could ultimately afford to pay for this Plan to unify the country.

The root cause of this conflict is land: Both the Israelis and the Palestinians want the same piece of land - the West Bank. What prevents a solution to be found is not the land, but the people. If the conflict were purely about land, Israel would have ended the conflict a long time ago: It conquered the land and did not know what to do with the Palestinians living on that land. It could not dispose of them, exile them, nor absorb them as citizens. The current side-by-side living keeps the conflict festering.

While this book describes the PEIS Plan as a three-way land transaction, at its core, it is about finding a place for the Palestinians to build their future. New Palestine, integrating the Gaza Strip with the purchased part of the Sinai Peninsula, is this place. As for Israel, it will achieve the eternal dream of Greater Israel, resolve the Palestinian issue, and use the PEIS Plan as a template to settle all conflicts with its Arab neighbors in the Middle East. This will open an unfamiliar chapter in the history of Israel since its inception in 1948: a country living in secure peace. The cost of the PEIS Plan is substantial. Egypt will use the proceeds of selling the insurgent-infested part of Sinai to modernize the rest of the country.

My pen name is Doc Ngu. "Doc" is because I have a doctoral degree in Computer Science from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. "Ngu" is because my last name is Nguyễn. And no, I am not related to your friend with the same surname: About 40% of Vietnamese have the Nguyễn surname. Out of college, I joined a division of AT&T Bell Laboratories in Skokie, Illinois, and was given the username "ngu" because Bell Labs abbreviated everything they could. I liked the "ngu" moniker right away because "ngu" means "idiot" in Vietnamese.

"Doc Ngu" is a teeter-totter seesawing between the smart and the dumb. Once in a while, members of my family asked about the progress of this book; I told them the PEIS Plan would be either an idea of genius or the dumbest idea in this century. You decide.
