It almost would be amusing to see the panic. But just a reminder. This is all wholly and totally speculation about what might happen 2 years in the future if the Palestinian Authority survives and is not dissolved in the interim. The Fayyad plan for independence does not call for a declaration until after the PA is ready, fully with the institutions of a state. What happens with Palestinian unity in the interim? Speculate - nobody knows. What happens to the Likud led government in the interim? Speculate - nobody knows. What happens to the settler lawlessness in the interim? Speculate - Nobody knows. Will Israel do another pre-election invasion of Gaza? Speculate - only the current crop of incumbents know.
