Realistic sequel to any development

will not be a military attack by Dayton's men or any other Falasteenian force upon Israel. Any such large scale attack will fail, they know it, we know it, so other alternatives will be sought. Another all out Arab-Israel war is not in the viewscope at the moment. The real problem facing the Falasteenians will be too many people inhabiting too little land. Westward into Israel they will not be able to expand in the foreseeable future. Eastward into Jordan is another story. I fully expect one of two scenaria: a) a Falasteenian initiative to integrate with Jordan, at the expense of the Hashemite dynasty, or b) a Jordanian pre-emptive initiative to recover WeBa or also Gaza, at the expense of elimination of the Old Guard of Falasteenian leaders. Yes there will be blood spilled - the story is far from finalization.
