Fatah option is State Dept fiction and doesn`t exist in reality. Only power keeping Fatah alive and preventing West Bank from turning into another Gaza under Hamas, is the Israeli army. 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 if you realize its aim is to provide the necessary next step along the 1974 PLO Staged Plan to dismantle Israel.
