In order to keep its international support, Palestine must declare statehood, but at the same time NOT declare war on Israel. Israel will likely declare war upon Palestine. It should suffice. But there is more yet. For as long as the Palestinian people are not united behind a common goal, there is the possibility of chaos. This will guarantee that Israel will win the ensuing conflict. That is what she depends upon for her mastery of the ME: disunity of the Palestinians and the split between West Bank and Gaza, PA and Hamas. PM Fayad is working this out. Maybe in two years the time will come when all these variables will add up to a declaration of statehood for Palestine. It is inevitable. The only question is when. Yes! Bibi is worried!
