Two-state solution

I think it will be three. I doubt West Bank and Gaza would form a viable state; recall the fate of Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Gaza is a well defined area, but what we call the West Bank is just a collection of pieces on the west, of course, bank of the Jordan river which was captured by the state of Transjordan because the nascent Israeli army was too weak to defend it. (I am glad it was strong enough to defend Tel Aviv; it was not obvious at the time.) Details of the borders will not be settled for a long, long time.
