The Three-State solution sounds attractive and seems rational, but I (and perhaps Abbas) consider it as only a temporary fix. Somewhere down the line, Gazans will throw off the Hamas yoke and seek unification with the West Bank. Accomplishing this will be much easier and safer if the legal mechanics and political machinery are already in place.I wish they would start talking about a three state solution instead of a two, as this would address the issues of the corridor as well as the leadership, making the corridor unnecessary, and more easily accommodating the fraction between Hamas and Fatah. Especially considering that the most influential clans in the west bank and Gaza have always been different and the fact that Palestinian identity is such a completely modern invention to begin with, I see no reason it should be written in stone that they should seek a two state solution.
With a three state solution, if the West bank proves to be sincerely interested in peace and follows suit with actions and Gaza remains a terrorist hellhole, then at least some of the Palestinians will be living in peace and Israel would only need to concentrate on Gaza.
