I like the idea of once again simply making it Egypt in lieu of any PA legitimacy or Hamas control, which is what an Israeli evacuation and 'shared' administration between Egypt and Israel amounts to. Egypt is a big country, the most populous in Africa. I'm sure they could manage a tiny strip of land with a million people in it. It gives the arabs a carrot in 'returning' it to arab control and it denies the Palestinians a toe-hold in forming their own terrorist state. Better terrorism come, if no one can stop it, from Egypt, a state that is actually engaged in the world and needs to appear to be rational as opposed to Palistan-the world's first fully functional legitimate terrorist nation against which no one is allowed to complain or act. Now if Israel engineers a similar gerrymandering of logical control over Judea and Samaria with Jordan we'll be very close to the endgame with the Palestinians.
