Reader comment on item: Anticipating Trump's "Deal of the Century"
in response to reader comment: what should follow from "its peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan"

You're right, Myth.

As I recall, when Jordan had the West Bank, I didn't hear a peep about Jordan occupying Palestinian lands. The Palestinians and the world seemed fine with it. Let Jordan have it back and we'll see how happy that makes Mahmoud Abbas, PhD. Ditto for when Egypt held Gaza. No one complained about Egypt occupying Palestinian lands. That was OK too, so Egypt should have Gaza back. Then they can supply Gaza with electricity and everything else and Israel can forget about all those chores they get no credit for anyway. I know Egypt will do an excellent job and not a single Gazan will have to pay a single bribe to get a single thing.

Israel will just have to make it clear to its neighbors that there will be very real and severe consequences if any resident of territory controlled by Jordan or Egypt enters Israel with murder on his mind.
