    What will happen when some Settlers attack the newly independent Palestiians? How could the new state protect it's citizens? How could Israel resist the call to 'defend' the Settlers? What could Palestine do to preserve itself when the IDF rolls to aid the 'besieged' Settlers? Which countries will allow the Palestinians to flee from the attack? Unless the United States is willing to both recognize the new state and ensure it's defense, there is no way to prevent a disaster. I don't think the Obama administration would do that.
