    "Palestinians" cannot govern themselves because they are South-Syrian Arabs locked-up in refugee camps and given pseudo-nat'l identity just to spearhead destruction of IL. Far from a nation, they are in essence an "anti-nation" unable to unite behind any other cause. Jordan, part of initial Palestine Mandate, was separated by Brits in 1922 to create original Pal-Arab state and is today one of best-run Arab states. Peace treaty with Egypt provides IL with Sinai security buffer. Lasting settlement can only be based on Gaza placed under Egypt; with parts of W.Bank linked to Jordan - possibly through a confederation - safeguarding security and settlements for Israel, demographics for Arabs, holy sites for both. Egypt and Jordan face no alternative, because they can't allow adjacent Muslim Bros (Hamas) or irredentist (Fatah) regimes, respectively. Any further "Palestinism" on narrow sliver will only bring more war, bloodshed and misery - not hoped-for peace!
