Palestinians ready to give up statehood

For a return to the caliphate. They're joining Hizb ut-Tahrir, the Islamic "liberation" party that wants to unite the Muslim world into a single caliphate. Israel would also be under Muslim rule.
"Any talk about a return to the caliphate, any talk about a return to religious values is something that is attractive to people," said Majid Abu Malah, 55, an Arabic-language teacher who attends regularly.

He, like many others, says he has given up on both Hamas and Fatah, and will not vote in the next election. "I believe in what [Hizb ut-Tahrir] gives."
