Your answer is 100% accurate... minus the small error that you’ve completely tried to remove the fact that there is a mandate for a state called Palestine formed of the West Bank and Gaza, suddenly it’s now completely inaccurate.
Why do people call it the 'two state solution' then?
Now people want a third state?
But Hamas and Fatah hate each other, so now it must be a fourth state?
Then what, a fifth state?
Palestine was split into two states - Jordan and Israel. The two state solution was an overwhelming success. Apart from when Jordan abandoned the West Bank people, and now Israel has to cope with refugees who hate them.
People blame the British but their plan was clear..... Palestine to be two states, Israel and Jordan. It was a logical and fair plan.
Then after the British handed over the country the United Nations got involved and announced the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine.
So people must stop blaming the British for the West Bank, and start blaming the UN. They changed the agreed plan, after many Jews had arrived to escape the holocaust.
Plus this was only a 'recommendation' from the UN anyway, and seeing as neither group of people has complied with it then it becomes invalid.
The original 1922 plan made the most sense, and that was the plan until the UN started messing around with it in 1948.
Jews went to Israel on the understanding that Israel was theirs and Jordan's was the arabs. It made sense, two strong nations with their own defenses and social and welfare practices.
Instead the UN insisted on ghettos being created, and that is why those in the West Bank became stateless.
It is not the fault of the British or the Israeli's. It is the fault of Jordan for leaving their kin stateless, and the UN for getting involved with their crackpot ideas.
It is time to return to the logical British plan, for Palestine to be split into two states - Israel and Jordan. Then we shall have peace.
Look at Ireland and Northern Ireland, in Northern Ireland they did not create a third area called Catholikastan, instead the catholics get the right to an Irish passport. Those in the West Bank should get their Jordanian passport, as was the original plan.
The British always have the best ideas, and there's was the plan that the holocaust survivors signed up to when they migrated.
