2 Palestinian States?

I thought there was a chance to split off some elements of Hamas to join the Palestinian coalition. Some, certainly not all. That's a moot question now. The policy of totally icing them out after democratically being elected had nowhere to go but this way. If law does not work, the only strategy known is power.

Hamas will control Gaza and Fatah the West Bank. The inevitable question, will anyone call for a mini-Balkans intra-Palestinian---2 Palestinian states?

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah said Tuesday's fighting amounted to a coup attempt by the Islamic militants.
