Out of the Box Strategies - Recognize Gazastan as the State of Palestine

Reader comment on item: Trump's Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's Capital – What Does It Mean?

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Dec 18, 2017 at 11:32

Effective strategies must conform to substantial historic changes expressed in the news cycles.
Here's what the PLO is plotting:

"Palestinians seek new policy after Jerusalem 'game changer'"

"You cannot just keep an open ended thing where Israel can expand at will on our land" PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi said on Sunday."

I propose that the United States and/or Israel (our ally) consider the following strategic changes:

(1) Recognize Gazastan as the State pf Palestine; and
(2) Break diplomatic relations with the PLO
(3) Grant and recognize dual citizenship; Israeli Arabs will be recognized as also citizens of Gazastan.
(4) As Ayatollah Iran and Hamas Gazastan have as their strategic goals, adopt a policy of regime-change for Iran; but also contemplate the long-term goal of "Jordan is Palestine,"
whereby Palestinian Arabs must be granted Jordanian citizenship.
(5) Encourage Kurdistan to declare its independence, followed immediately by Israel and American recognition, and if war follows, look to a corridor of land, with no fly zones
in which Kurdistan links to Israel through Syria, Iraq and/or Jordan
the paradigm here is the current crescent of Iran linking itself through Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon
and reaching Mediterranean Sea.

These are just some of the issues.
It is to be noted that Putin the other day thanked the CIA and Trump
for disclosing a terrorist plot to blow up a Church in St. Petersburg;
also, his former Jewish Russian high school teacher of German,
in her middle 90's died in Israel,
and he as been honoring her for years with gifts,
and had his diplomatic office participate in her funeral expenses.
Accordingly, Russia is a potential ally of the USA & Israel in the Middle East
if only Mueller finally gets off Trumps case
terminated the charge of collusion between Trump and Russia
during the Presidential transition from Obama to Trump.
I'm of the opinion that this crisis is substantially a partisan dispute
which harms the national interests of the United States
because it diminishes Trumps abilities to come to terms with Putin
in the Middle East's foreign policy playing field.
