A three State Solution to Victory

Reader comment on item: Victory – An Obsolete Concept?

Submitted by David J. Jonah (United States), Jul 28, 2009 at 18:18

With the Palestinian's a three state solution can lead to peace or victory and peace. The three states would be Israel in the middle, Gaza ruled by Hamas, and The West Bank ruled by Fatah. If each were armed states, then if war were to break out, nations would be fighting nations - victory would be possible. However, it is unlikely that the West bank state would go to war as it is land locked. To survive and grow it must make peace with its neighbors.

Gaza as an armed state will have only two choices - choose peace to grow and develop, or face a crushing defeat at the hands of Israel. As nations, the oppressor and victim label ends. Should Gaza attack - lob missles- it is an act of war. Victory becomes the goal.

Of course the possibility that Israel could be defeated exists. Still with a three state solution, peace has a chance. Any other approach maintains the status quo, which is not working.
