Let the Palestinian Authority Declare Independence

According to Reuters, Abbas Aide Says Declaring Independence a Possibility:

Palestinians should declare an independent state unilaterally if peace talks with Israel continue to falter, Yasser Abed Rabbo, a top aide to Mahmoud Abbas, said on Wednesday. "Kosovo is not better than us. We deserve independence even before Kosovo," Abed Rabbo said. However, Saeb Erekat, another senior Palestinian negotiator, voiced opposition to any unilateral declaration of independence and said the PLO had already declared independence in 1988.

[The Palestinian Authority is already, de facto, an independent terrorist state — actually, two separate terrorist states, Hamastan and Fatahland.

Let them declare independence and stop pretending Israel has any obligation to them. It would clarify the situation and force them to suffer the consequences when they launched terror attacks against Israel.

They would have a small problem of not having defined borders, but Israel has managed to deal with that problem for six decades.]
