A country for the Palestinians should be totally contiguous. Not a series of isolated enclaves. And certainly not the West Bank and Gaza. Let Egypt handle Gaza. I am not getting into geography but carve out a section along the Dead Sea and Jordan river and that's Palestine. MOve the border at least 20 miles away from Jersalem for security. Half the area currently designated as the West Bank should be Palestine, the remainder Israel.
A few points.
1) The most likely resolution is a Jerusalem 100% under two sovereigns, with Arab residents as Palestinian citizens, Jewish residents as Israeli citizens, and laws set up by some mechanism to be agreed upon.
2) You need to brush up on your geography - 20 miles away from Jerusalem puts you in Jordan. At its narrowest point, the Jordanian border is less than 20 kilometers
