You worry about Palestine attacking Israel after independence. Why would they do that if they've got the Israelis out? Fayyad and Abbas are not Arafat and Meshal. Attacks from the West Bank have anyway virtually ceased under the new Pal troops. There is no reason to believe that, with EU assistance, Palestine will be any more of a threat than Jordan or Egypt. I think Israelis do tend to read everything closely in the hope of finding a flaw. Palestinian sovereignty will not at all be 'at question'. If it is recognised as independent and with sovereignty over its territory by the UN, that's it, game over, Israel can make no more unilateral territorial demands. And nobody is talking about recognising Palestine under 'a divided house', by which I assume you mean Israeli 'claims' to the land. If the EU recognises Palestine, that is a matter between these two, Israel is not in the equation. If it has 'disputed land' issues, it can always try its luck in the international courts.
