would the PA survive peace on the West Bank at all?

Reader comment on item: Making Sense of Palestinian Logic

Submitted by myth (Germany), May 25, 2019 at 17:18

In the event of peace between Israel and the PA on the West Bank in an imaginary Palestine I would expect even greater problems for the PA. How long, in hours, would it take for Hamas to take over the West Bank and eliminate PA leadership? Would the PA survive peace on the West Bank at all? Why wouldn't the West Bank share the fate of Gaza? Concluding from the PA perspective the hostilities as they are now seem the better option.

On the Southern border Hamas demonstrates to their suppliers their willingness to fire rockets received. Those rockets, if launched from Jerusalem's elevation, would transform into very effective weapons hitting the majority of Israel's population. Hamas must have an interest in taking over the West Bank.

Was it Nietzsche who said he would rather have good enemies than bad friends? IDF are good enemies to the PA. Hamas are bad friends to the PA.
