  Proposals for a Palestinian state - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On October 1, an independent Palestinian state in all of Palestine was declared, with Jerusalem as its capital.
Palestinian negotiators have so far insisted that refugees, and all their descendents, from the 1948 and 1967 wars have a right to return to the places they were lived in before 1948 and 1967, including those within the 1949 Armistice lines.
Palestinians have argued that the IDF, a large and modern armed force, poses a direct and pressing threat to the sovereignty of any future Palestinian state, making a defensive force for a Palestinian state a matter of necessity.

 The Case against a Palestinian state
Palestinians leaders have not stopped referring to Israel as the enemy, nor have they stopped referring to terrorists as heroes, and their acts of sadistic murder as "military operations." This language serves as the foundation and justification for continued terror.
The military impact of a Palestinian state must be examined in a wider regional context, in which Israel remains a very small state and in which some Arab states, such as Syria and Iraq, maintain a state of war and are continuing to build up their military capabilities.
A functioning state is, by definition, one in which the state has a monopoly on the use of force, providing security for its citizens and not allowing its territory to be used as a staging platform for terror.

 Table of contents for Building a successful Palestinian state
To gain the support of the majority of Palestinians; three-fourths of whom public opinion surveys suggest support reconciliation with Israel and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state; a new state must be seen as legitimate by its citizens and practice the good governance that is necessary to maintain public respect and support.
When a Palestinian state is established, its success is not only important as an end in itself; it could influence the course of political and social reform in the greater Middle East.
Through the establishment of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964, Palestinians formally rejected the existence of Israel and called for a Palestinian state in the whole of all the territory that was governed by the British under the League of Nations mandate of 1920 (excluding Transjordan).

 Hail the Struggle of the Palestinian Youth! Declare an Independent Palestinian State Now!   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The question now is whether there is a political leadership worthy of the heroism of these Palestinian fighters, a political leadership capable of officially declaring the aim so many Palestinians have already died to achieve: an actual independent Palestinian state.
The potential power of the Palestinian uprising to open up a new period of struggle against imperialist domination and oppression creates both the possibility and the urgent necessity of an official declaration of an independent Palestinian nation now.
But the Palestinians can win, if a bold political policy can match the boldness of the fighters in the streets and mobilize international mass support for Palestinian independence while opening a new period of struggle against oppression and exploitation around the world.

 F L A M E : An Independent Palestinian State: Would it be a peaceful neighbor of Israel or would it lead to war?
A Palestinian state never occurred to the Ottomans who ruled the area until their defeat in World War I, nor to the British when they had the mandate over Palestine until 1948, nor to the Jordanians who ruled the “West Bank” from 1948 to 1967.
The stated purpose of the Arabs, endlessly repeated and never excised from their “covenant,” is to acquire whatever territory they can, in order to use it as a base for the final assault against the Jewish state and for the hoped-for extinction of the hated “Zionist entity” once and for all.
Even today, as the Palestinians are under the severe weapons restrictions that they accepted in the Oslo Accord which allowed only a police force with light weapons, they have artillery, rockets, missiles and all kinds of heavy weaponry that they have smuggled into their territory.

 Vanguard Online Edition : Mahmoud Abbas: An independent Palestinian State now
In all the series of contacts initiated by the Republicans, aimed at laying the foundation of some ‘proximity talks’ between the Israelis and Palestinians, the impression was that the Likud government was less prepared for the excessive pressure from Washington.
Mahmoud Abbas, regarded as the future president of an independent Palestinian state, is one of the rising apostles of peace in the region.
And the reason is this: “During his term as the Palestinians’ first prime minister, from April to September 2003, he promised to curb violence and establish security in the Palestinian-populated territories, under the terms of the Road Map.
