    Proper path for PA state should be to include Trans-Jordan in any land deal - giving ethnic Palestinians their 70% share of present-day Jordan,where they are a 70% majority, and giving the 30% hashemite bedouins the eastern third of the country, where they originated before the Brits decided to give them the rest to insure it remained a Brit colonial outpost. That would give the "Palestinians" a 24,000 sq. mile state 3 times the size of Israel instead of a 1600 sq. mile state, while Hashemites would retain a 12,000 sq. mile state, still far more than they controlled before the Brits stepped in and gave away Palestine in violation of their Mandate charter. The tiny "W. Bank" (which Trans-Jordan named the western province it stole from Palestinian Arabs in 1948 and annexed) can then be divided 50-50 between Arab and Jew. There's no 1600 sq. mile "viable states" in the world, except for Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, "contiguity" has nothing to do with it. Don't need 2 Palestinian states.
