I don't think there is or will be any solution that puts an end to the violence,there are solutions that can reduce the the degree of resentment that the Palestinians have to having their land usurped but that will increase the resentment in Israel because the settlers in the occupied territories won't be happy about being evicted. There is going to be no deal that ends all violence,just a remote possibility of fairer deal to the Palestinians and that deal seems to be going back to the 1967 borders. Israel has no intention of ever cutting that deal.
Israel has played a delaying game with the occupied territories , progressively filling the place with settlers and sticking 2 fingers up at UN mandates. Israel has used Palestinian and Arab violence as the excuse to strengthen their claim on the territories and not negotiate but if you look at the kill ratios of Palestinians to Israelis there is no parity loads of Palestinians die per Israeli but the fault always lies with the Palestinians. An environment has been created for perpetual violence and Israel has put stipulations that there has to be an end to violence for negotiation but Israel has no intention of doing any deal that would resemble going back to the 1967 borders. Playing the perpetual victim card is a great tool to justify not doing deals and usurping Palestinian land.
The occupied territories should never have been occupied with settlers in the first place and removing those settlers makes it now near impossible for Israel to cut a meaningful deal with the Palestinians which was the objective. The situation has been made deliberately complicated so that the simple solution of giving the land which is rightfully Palestinian back never happens.
