Palestine wants to be independent. Why not indeed? If you do that, then the EU, USA and NATO will send loads of peacekeepers, soldiers, policemen, economists and and and to help the latest state up and running, and protect the Palestinians. I quote:
RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - A top aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday the Palestinians should consider declaring an independent state unilaterally if peace talks with Israel continue to falter.
Yasser Abed Rabbo, a member of the Palestinian negotiating team with the Israelis, told Reuters that if they could not reach a deal with the Jewish state, the Palestinians could consider declaring independence like Kosovo did on Sunday.
"If things are not going in the direction of actually halting settlement activities, if things are not going in the direction of continuous and serious negotiations, then we should take the step and announce our independence unilaterally," he said.

All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
