Three-state solution idea has merit
Chonnie Romm is reasonable (Stop flogging the dead horse two-state solution – Jewish Report 27 November).
Thus the practical solution is a “3 State Solution” where:
- Egypt mandates Gaza, with a United Nations mandate (like South Africa mandated South West Africa);
- Jordan administers some of the West Bank, starting with 17 to 21 per cent; and
- Israel, Jordan and possibly Egypt join the Commonwealth. A canal from the sea along the Jordan River with desalination will rejuvenate the region.
Details of the 3 state solution are on Wikipedia. Both Egypt and Jordan are important stakeholders. Perhaps statehood will be reached after several years of administration.
