John Bolton says 2-state solution's no longer viable

And it never was. The Jerusalem Post (via Breitbart) interviewed the former UN ambassador, who doesn't see the PLO changing:
There is no chance President Donald Trump will secure a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Speaking just before he received the Guardian of Zion Award from Bar-Ilan University’s Ingeborg Rennert Center for Jerusalem Studies at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, Bolton said Trump “is an optimistic man and can take a good shot at it, but I don’t think the conditions exist. I don’t think the two-state solution is viable anymore.”

“It is not a question of personality or effort, it is just undoable. There has been a 70-plus year effort for the two-state solution,” which has failed, he said, adding, “You can’t put it back together again.”

Bolton said both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority were not viable interlocutors for peace and that any two-state solution would lead to “a terror state or an anarchic state.”
However, he starts making alternative suggestions I cannot agree with:
Instead, he proposed a threestate solution to include, “giving Gaza to Egypt, dividing up the West Bank – however it would be divided – with those not included in Israel becoming part of Jordan.”
I must firmly disagree, because it would be no different from ceding land back to the 1949 armistice lines. And besides, it would also be validating segregation, instead of demanding that adherents to Islam let go of the religion. What's more, Jordan's been putting hostility on display again, and that's why they wouldn't be a reliable manager either.
