At first, I was going to disagree with you, noting that the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza represented a wonderful opportunity for the assertion of Palestinian statehood that the Palestinians chose to miss. But ultimately, I agree. Force the Palestinians to establish a state, since they seem more interested in attacking and demonizing Israel than in making something of Gaza. Then, you would have a case of one country attacking another sovereign country, and Israel wouldn't look like an occupier robbing the Palestinians of their right to statehood.
