9 September 2014: The map above depicts my geographic estimation of what the 1,600 square kilometers of land Egypt has offered to the Palestinian Authority in the Sinai 10 days ago would look like on a map. Egypt offered this land to Mahmoud Abbas as more than adequate compensation for whatever land in Judea and Samaria the PA would of necessity relinquish in a comprehensive peace deal, and within which a fully sovereign State of Palestine would be created.
This proposed State of Palestine would have defensible borders controlled by Palestinians. It would have a Palestinian Army. A Navy and an Air Force. It would have airports and seaports, a national currency, as well as mineral and other resources rights under the land and sea. It would have had a seat in the United Nations as a full-fledged member of that world body and all other world bodies that it so would choose to belong to.
