Mike: You are of course correct, but you miss the whole point. Netanyahu is playing a clever game. He knows Abbas cannot accept Israel as a Jewish State because he cannot speak for Hamas, which simply would not align with the West Bank if he did say it on behalf of West Bank Palestine. Hence, Netanyahu makes peace with the West Bank and is at war with Gaza??? Would the UN or EU support a three state solution? I expect not! The Palestinians are their own worst enemy. They have to make peace among themselves first.
