How can the Palestinians ask for a state when the man who supposedly represents them can't even enter Gaza which is supposed to be part of that state? Has anyone asked Abbas if he will go to war to conquer Gaza if a state was declared? If the answer is no, then Gaza would have to be independent of the rest of Palestine. This whole thing is a total farce and what is even more said is that the entire world knows it and let's the Palestinians make fools out of themselves. Very sad.
