R.I.P. One-State Solution; Long Live 3-State Solution?

I come to bury the one-state solution, not praise it. Now that Hamas is laying the groundwork to declare Gaza’s independence from Palestine, it’s easier to be dismissive of arguments for the one-state solution, like this op-ed in The Independent.

A borderline-confused Greg in Australia wants to know: Why the stink over the ’67 borders now?
