Is a Palestinian state even viable? (Part II)

I recently ran across two stories that press the question even further:

  • The New York Times reported on the dire condition of the Palestinian Authority here.
  • Nathan Brown, in an article quoted in the story, writes a critical but sympathetic evaluation of Salaam Fayyad, many Westerners’ best hope for creating a viable Palestinian state. Brown writs that Fayyad could at best stave off the decline of Palestinian governance, but built no new institutions.
