"Instead, he proposed a three-state solution to include, "giving Gaza to Egypt, dividing up the West Bank – however it would be divided – with those not included in Israel becoming part of Jordan."

The plus for the Palestinians, according to Bolton, would be "two viable economies and a better life day-to-day for Palestinians and their children."

"Considering that neither Hamas, Fatah, Jordan, Egypt – nor most of the world – favors such a solution, Bolton said he did not "underestimate the difficulty of a three-state solution. If you want to pursue the two-state solution. Knock it out – it isn't going to work."
