For those not familiar with internals of Canada, the country's largest (areawise--it ranks second in population) province has long and oft been raising threat of separation from rest-of-Canada (most stridently when the country has QC-born Prime Minister). However, it is economically unviable for Quebec to be independent nation--as its economy relies on transfer payments from Ottawa. In the case of "Palestinian state", the case is even worse; "Palestinians" are descendants of three Old Testament nations/tribes--specifically Edomites, Moabites and Ammonites--all of whom were divinely proscribed from ever re-establishing as a nation/kingdom; the fact that even Arab nations DO NOT want a "Palestinian state" (though they shill much for it, their actions since 1948 show their hypocrisy) is a sign of this!
