It has a clearly defined territory recognized by Israel and internationally. It needs to clearly define citizenship and governance. If the neighbouring countries remove blockades and promise help for building infrastructure, it can become a small prosperous city-state, a big step for peace in the Middle East.
Arguments for Israel's historical claim to land are not well founded; I would not dare imagine that it is a good idea in 2017 for nations to try and occupy land based on history (as long as each nation has a viable space to prosper and does not impede on other nations same rights).
If citizens of Gaza feel a connection to West Bank, other Arab states, or even Israel (in a future utopia), they can decide to become part of something greater than their city-state. But only if its citizens decide it.
At this rate there will be no independent West Bank due to both American and Israeli actions and all this would do is allow this small exclave of Palestine the ability to govern themselves without holding the rest of Palestine responsible for the actions of small minded Hamas. Should they wish to continue bombing and building facilities for war instead of trying to improve Gaza then so be it, but they should be held responsible for it instead of the State of Palestine who have to bend backwards after every flare up Gaza has with Israel.
No, I do not believe that Gaza should be independent, because if Israel wants the land, they should be able to have it. Israel has been fighting for that land since 1000 years before Christ. They occupied Gaza centuries earlier than the Palestinians did. If they want the land, they should have it.
I think an independent Gaza would lead to more problems then it would solve, there is to much tension in that area over the disputed land that forming a new nation with a new Govenrment would only add to even more instability in a region that is already unstable in general.
I do not think that Gaza should be independent for the sole reason they have not earned the right to be independent. The Palestinians who live there have done nothing but cause problems for the Israeli and are in no role of power to demand a nation independent of Israel.

Gaza should not be independent and this is a very sensitive subject. Nations and people have been fighting for generations over this topic because of the religious beliefs of groups of people. It is likely not to be solved anytime soon but both parties should manage their differences in a proper way.
