The Middle East: Now a Three-State Solution?

Ghitis, Frida
June 2007
World Politics Review;6/15/2007, p1
The author comments on the solution for peace between Palestine and Israel. According to the author, Palestine has been divided into two entities, Gaza which is held by Hamas and the West Bank, under Fatah. Hamas wants an Islamic state and it has steadfastly rejected Israel's right to exist. Fatah, on the other hand, always adhered to a more secular vision and its leadership gradually and reluctantly agreed to recognize Israel and negotiate peace.
