    There is no legal prohibition on dividing Israel/Palestine, and the principles of self-determination suggest it is the customary legal solution when self-determination and territorial integrity collide.

    There is. It is called territorial integrity.

    You are confusing viable with desirable. The status quo may not be pretty, but it is clearly quite viable since it has survived since 1967 despite all the opposition from the Arabs, the Europeans and even the Obama administration. It is the only viable solution because all others would require the Palestinians to abandon their culture of Jew hatred and support a unified government that had abandoned it and clearly that is not going to happen.

    You are just flat out wrong on this, as on many things. When the concepts of territorial integrity and self-determination are in conflict, customarily, self-determination takes precedence.

    There is absolutely no prohibition in law against territories being divided, or borders changing, or territory being transferred from one State to another. Its all legally viable.

    You are confusing viable with stable. Its not stable.

    And while I may agree with you that the options are limited due to Arab Palestinians obstinate unwillingness to let go of the violence and hate, its still not a solution, but a holding pattern.

    It is very stable. For all the noise some people make over the status quo there is nothing else to do. If you want to think of it as a holding pattern, fine, but it is a holding pattern that will have to stay in place until the Palestinians are willing and able to give up their Jew hatred and form a unified government that is also able to abandon it, and we are at least generations away from such profound changes in their culture and political development.

    So for the foreseeable future, the status quo is the only viable solution.

    Out of curiosity, do you see as part of that status quo ensuring that Israel does not annex land and limits Jewish development in Area C?

    No, since there will be no Palestinian state for the foreseeable future, there is no need to limit the development of area C. The happy ending for the Palestinians will not be a Palestinian state along the 1949 ceasefire lines but the opportunity peace and prosperity in an autonomous region under Israeli security control in areas A and B.
