    WB Arabs face only 2 real options: (a) Hamas rule, or (b) Jordanian rule. Fatah option is State Dept fiction and doesn't exist in the real world. Only power keeping Fatah alive and preventing WB from turning into another Gaza under Hamas, is Israeli military. Solutions: (a) Gaza: Under linkage to Egypt or Jordan, turned into Dubai-like indl/comml hub on East Med; (b) West Bank: Parts federated with Jordan -- safeguarding security & settlements for Israel, demographics for Arabs, holy sites for both. 2-State Plan doesn't make sense only if you think its aim is Peace; it makes a lot of sense as necessary next step for 1974 PLO Staged Plan to dismantle Israel.
