“and give the Gaza Strip a state so that Hamas can play there.”

It’s far more likely that President Trump will give Israel the green light to exterminate Hamas.

From the leader who refuses to meet with Israel or the US. It's called reality, like the Golan. Even discussion of peace since Oslo has acknowledged that Israel will keep most areas of Judea and Samaria populated by Jews. Palestinians have agreed on that point three times. Before refusing peace for other reasons. Primarily, peace isn't the objective. Give Gaza to Hamas? Who does Abbas thinks rules Gaza, Martians? He knows it's not under his control. And it will be disconnected, as it is on the map. The connection idea hasn't been mentioned since GWB left office. A once influential man, could have been the father of all palestinian states, now he talks to himself and no one listens. Except some Euros.

When has Israel needed a green light from anyone to exterminate Hamas?

In other words Trump is just recognizing the reality of the situation. The PA had 30 years to do something serious. All they did was line pockets and lose their grip on Gaza. The Israelis were not going to give Golan back to Syria. Trump recognizes some of the settlement blocks will have to be incorporated into Israel, maybe with some land swaps and cash to develop the swapped land.

Gaza will have to work their issues out with Egypt.

UNWRA camp residents in foreign countries need to be integrated in those countries - the Palestinians in the West Bank are never going to want to double the WB population by transplanting 5 generations of people who have lived in Lebanon etc with poor education, lack of marketable skills, and totally unfamiliar with the WB society.

Best solution is for Hamas to lay down their weapons and talk with Egypt about Sinai development to expand the size of Gaza, build a port, export nat gas, create tourism zones on the Mediterranean coast etc ...

The “peace process” was tried for decades. Time to look at other approaches. Time to really convince the Palestinians that their choices are to either settle down, or face a future that they REALLY will dislike.

Peace can come but not by the method suggested. That is impossible and would only create or enable more and more Muslim terrorist attacks and murder raids and bomb if’s if it were ever attempted. End the Muslim Occupation of the Jewish Promised Land now! Get rid of the damned Fakestinians. You can’t make peace with such Satanic evil 👿 nor is it moral to even try.

Mahmoud Abbas can be uncommonly perceptive. Trying to maintain the Gaza Strip and the West Bank under one governing system is a fool’s errand anyway. A similar problem came up when the Dominion of India was divided into the Republic of India and the federation that made up the Muslim district, Pakistan, which was originally divided into East and West Pakistan. Eventually East Pakistan was reorganized as Bangladesh, under separate governance altogether. West Pakistan was organized largely on the principle of trying to wrest full control of Kashmir from India, and this remains their primary reason for existence even today, otherwise they are just part of - Afghanistan.

Give them Gaza but they’d have to get used to hard labor instead of hatching terror plots, protesting and terrorizing Israelis.

This is amusing: “The Trump Administration will allow Israel. . . .”

My guess is that President Trump will ENCOURAGE Israel to do whatever it takes to preserve their country!

I’m all for it. Only a blind man can’t see there was never a possibility of a two state solution when there are clearly three states.

Gaza is in fact Hamas and for Israeli security must be destroyed. There must old fashioned war where lots of people, read gazan’s,must be killed. Although there are no so called innocents, many of them must die to insure Hamas is eradicated.

The peace mongering Europeans and their antiwar rules must be cast on the trash heap of history so there can be effective war.

Keep dragging your feet and refusing to negotiate. Things are being taken off the table one after another and soon there will be nothing left.

Too bad Egypt won’t administer Gaza, as part of a demilitarized Sinai.

Go ahead and step the walls out further on the West Bank, to incorporate the Jewish population and improve the defense of the border.

Maybe in the future, the Saudis can absorb some of the Arab population to develop their Neom city of the future.
