Israel has too much vested in the West Bank including the settlements and security facing east. The West Bank will never be independent. The proper model for the West Bank is that of a commonwealth of Israel just as Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the US. Puerto Ricans are US citizens but do not vote in US elections. They govern themselves under US oversight. Right of Return for Palestinians can mean return to the West Bank Commonwealth with some financial compensation. West Bankers may not like it but it is the best they will get. Gaza will be the only independent Palestinian state. Israel planned this a long time ago and is following the script. The US is complicit. Don't undersell Israel and the US. They talk about peace with the Palestinians but they do not mean it. It is all for public consumption. The actual game plan is much more realistic and sensible, and good for the Palestinians except they would never agree voluntarily.
