West Bank key to Palestinian state

Max Hastings is massively pessimistic of the prospect for Israeli-Palestinian peace, with or without Ariel Sharon:

The Israelis will remain insufficiently despairing to make indispensable territorial concessions. The Americans will not oblige them to do so. The Palestinians will remain unable to muster a credible negotiating position. Sharon's departure will not alter these fundamentals.
