The Palestinian Authority, which has already made a pact with the Hamas terrorist organization, now seeks recognition for a unilaterally declared state at the United Nations.

Congress, for its part, threatens to cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority if it breaches its commitment to direct talks with Israel and pursues unilateralism.
American mediators, meanwhile, lobby other members of the Middle East Quartetthe U.S., the European Union, the U.N., and Russiain an attempt to forge a new framework for renewing Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

- Hamas is wiped out, Abbas wets his pants, the West Bank is pacified, and Jewish settlements in Judea/Samaria resume as they should.
- So-called 'Palestinians' go back to Jordan where they belong, and Israel annexes the West Bank and what's left of Gaza.
Right on.....I just love it when a plan comes together. :-)
“Recipe for peace”
Sounds like a plan. I like it.

Palestinians recognize weakness, American weakness. As to By accepting the Jewish State, the Palestinians can have their own, they can have one without recognizing the Jewish State.
American mediators, meanwhile, lobby other members of the Middle East Quartet -- the U.S., the European Union, the U.N., and Russia -- in an attempt to forge a new framework for renewing Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
