Who would win in this scenario?  Would it mean a certain 3rd Intifada?

Isn't that what Israel want, control of the West Bank?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

I'm sure they'd love unrestricted access to the land sans Palestinians :w00t:   But I think what Abbas is threatening here is to dissolve the P.A. and make Israel financially responsible for ALL the residents of the WB.  HUGE burden and apt to create a third intifada overnight I expect.  Apparently when Israel cut off the tax revenues after the UN announcement about statehood, Abbas got a little upset.  He has gone to all the Arab nations and they can't seem to pass the hat and come up with 100 million a month for the beloved Palestinian cause.  Is it just me or is that a bit unseemly?  To pledge undying support for your "poor relations" yet not be willing to help them in a time of extreme need?
