The practical solution is “three-state solution” with:

  1. Egypt mandates Gaza, with a United Nations mandate like South Africa mandated South West Africa. This was suggested by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon at Ashkelon in April 2003 to Sar-El volunteers;
  2. Jordan administers Trans-Hebron Wall West Bank (about 17 per cent of West Bank); 
  3. Israel, Jordan and possibly Egypt join the Commonwealth. A canal from the sea along the Jordan River with desalination will rejuvenate the region (Red Sea-Dead Sea project); and
  4. Israel, Jordan and possibly Egypt join the Commonwealth with South Africa.

    Jordan would still be the Palestinian state; being over 2/3’s of Palestine. A 2ndPalestine on the West Bank, affiliated to ISIS, is a threat to Jordan.

    Similarly, Gaza & HAMAS have declared solidarity with ISIS, and are a threat to Egypt.

    As Jordan and Egypt are important stake-holders, they must be considered.
