#2 a corrupt violent welfare state that destabilizes everything it touches? A perfect fit

#3 I wonder if they mean only the West Bank/Palestinian Authority to be the new Palestinian state, leaving Gaza/Hamas twisting in the wind with no official status? Because the two parts of the Territories are at very different places in terms of developing the infrastructure to manage a normal country, compared to a terror organization grafted onto a community.

#4 tw, the obvious solution to the problem of West Bank vs Gaza is to admit BOTH of them as states - so each can wield a vote. And when Gaza splits between the "moderate" Hamas and the Salafist snuffies, give the new state a seat as well.

If this means that there are too many countries in the UN, just kick Israel out.

/sarcasm (in case any of you were wondering.)

My hope would be that the US would have the sense to veto any application from the Palestinians. Unfortunately, with the current administration, I don't think we'll see that.
