Impeachment? Cui Bono?

Impeachment is inevitable according to Elizabeth Drew veteran columnist for the New York Times.

Ms. Drew is as old as the hills, and she was a former director of the Council on Foreign Relations. Well, when you are as connected as she was with the “gentlemen” from Corporate America who now rule our country, her opinion must be considered seriously.

Of course, impeachment is not a conviction. Impeachment is a trial.

One must ask first, though, why the real rulers of America, that being Corporate America, would want their boy, Trump, thrown out of office.

He’s doing just fine by them.

Sure, he’s removed a few token troops from Syria in order to fire up his base, but has he made any real dent in America’s war machine? 

Has he fired John Bolton?

NIMHO.

He continues to support Israel to the hilt. He continues to wage verbal warfare against Iran.

It sounds to me like he’s just getting going. It sounds to me like he’s getting the war machine ready for the next offensive.

As for James Mattis resigning, if James Mattis resigned it is only because Corporate America wanted him out of there. He wants a job on a boardroom someday, doesn’t he?  Well, if he does he better not anger Corporate America. They never forget.

No, I think Mattis was perhaps too reasonable for our corporate warmongers, too much the voice of peace, always a danger to the aspirations of corporate America.

Hey, remember those halcyon days when American leaders cared about peace in the world?

Ha, what a pack of wimps those guys were.

The stock market plunge? Why would  Corporate America give one rat’s ass about the stock market? They’ve been manipulating it for years, stealing money from the American people. They don’t care if the market goes down; that just gives them the opportunity to swoop in and buy stocks cheap.

The shutdown over the wall?  Corporate America couldn’t care less if a few Americans go without pay for the next month or two. That doesn’t affect them.  They rather prefer the fracas and discussion over the wall, a stupid idea if there ever was one.

Indeed, Corporate America loves the wall and the discussion there of. They do so because it distracts Americans from discussing the real cause of immigration from Central America, which is that Corporate America has raped the people of Central America and have been doing so for many, many decades.

Trump is a good thing for the corporate elite. Why would they want to get rid of him and have some wild and crazy guy like Mike Pence get in there?

Mike Pence might do something wise. Mike Pence might have a sensitivity to the American people and feel that war is not in their best interest. Mike Pence might feel the pain of people who’ve lost money in the stock market. He might see it as the casino that it is. Mike Pence might agree with Mr. Obrador in Mexico City who feels that investment in Central America and improving the lives of its inhabitants might prevent immigration into the United States.

Oh the horror, the horror.  What would become of the common market and the Amero?

It wouldn’t become, and that is the point.  The elites from Corporate America desire to build their new world, and they will have it.

At this point in time, Trump is an  integral instrument to achieve that.  And so, in this author’s opinion, Trump will be with us for quite some time.

Sure, there might be an impeachment process, but if Corporate America doesn’t want a conviction to take place, it won’t happen.

Corporate America controls the U.S. Senate. Their boys will do what they’re told to do, or they won’t get the money to get reelected.

That’s what I think of Trump’s impeachment.

Cui bono?

The Secure Land

The similarities between modern-day Israel and Nazi Germany are frightening and heartbreaking.

Israel under the death grip of the Likud Party wages a campaign of hatred towards Palestinians.

Just as Jews were cast as rodents by the Nazis, so are the Palestinians cast similarly by hardline Jews in Israel today.

Excluding Oren Hazan, a true hardliner if there ever was one, top prize might go to Yair Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister’s son.

Palestinians are not permitted to drive the same streets as Jews just as Jews were not permitted to walk down sidewalks in Nazi Germany.

When Palestinians own cars they are required to use green license plates just as Jews were required to wear yellow stars in Nazi Germany.

Israelis who oppose such indignities must keep quiet or suffer retribution by the majority of Israelis who abide by this program.

Indeed the Israelis who do speak out are labeled as traitors.

Massive rallies led by hardliners are held to support other hardliners who uphold hardline views.  

Calls for extermination of the Palestinians are common in Israel today just as calls for extermination of the Jews was called for in Nazi Germany.

Indeed, today, Palestinians are being slowly exterminated in the new Warsaw ghetto known as the Gaza Strip just as Jews were slowly exterminated in the real Warsaw ghetto during World War II.

The goal is to dispirit and destroy a people.

This is justified by a body of historical revisionism otherwise known as lies.

Just as the Nazis reinvented history so do the Jews in Israel today.  The question as to how these Palestinians came to live in Gaza and the West Bank is not even discussed.  Did they all rush in on a lark in 1948?

Meanwhile Jewish archaeologists race furiously around their land to discover artifacts that support their right to be there and own it.  Of course, Jews have lived there; is that up for debate?

Israeli geneticists work tirelessly to discover a Jewish gene which supports what one may ask.  What would a Jewish gene prove?  A master race?  Manifest destiny?  The efforts to discover a Jewish gene are as mindless as German phrenology. 

Well, maybe not to the current leadership of Israel which must find some justification or possibly distraction for its existence.  And so the leadership toils on, lying to its people, reminding them they are under attack just as the German leaders did to their own people  throughout the 1930s.

Yes, it’s truuuue.  The German people in the 30s and 40s thought they were the ones under siege.

Deceiving your own people is integral to achieving a police state.

And a police state is what Israel has become.  The evidence is everywhere.

Turrets, checkpoints and thirty-foot walls dot the landscape.  A military presence is everywhere.  The people are kept in a state of constant fear.

Stories abound everyday in the news of some atrocity committed against a Jew somewhere.

And when the Palestinian who commits that offense is caught, not only is his home destroyed but so are those of other Palestinians.

This was a favorite tactic of the Nazis who would execute an entire community of Jews for the murder of one German soldier. It’s called collective punishment.

Had enough?

Well, it doesn’t end there.

To keep the world from discovering what is truly going on, disinformation specialists are sent out throughout the world to control the message.

Anyone who speaks out against Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is attacked in any number of ways.

They are either excommunicated from the internet or they are labeled as antisemitic.  Efforts are made to have him fired from their jobs.

In the penultimate analysis though, truth cannot be suppressed. Truth will always out itself and not to the benefit of the people who suppress the truth.

Ultimately, Israel’s leadership will prove to be the biggest enemy of the Jewish people just as Germany’s leaders proved to be the biggest enemy of the German people.  Or did the bombing of Dresden not occur?

Just as Germany was the architect of its own demise so will Israel be the architect its own demise.

This is a certainty.

The leader of Israel, Lord Bibi, I’m sure, has his heart in the right place.  He wants to prevent future Holocausts.

I’m sure Hitler felt the same way about the German people.

Israel and Oil

This is what our clueless  vice-President, Mike “I love Hamilton” Pence, had to say the other day at the Israeli American Council meeting in Miami :

“This is an administration that stands with Israel!  Today it is my honor to say: If the world knows nothing else, let the world know this: America stands with Israel! We stand next to Israel because we believe in right over wrong, good over evil, liberty over tyranny. Support for the Jewish State is not a partisan issue. It is an American issue.”

Has this man, Mike Pence, ever had an original thought in his brain?  That’s my first take.  Is he a wind-up Ken doll?

Secondly, I feel sorry for many Jews because they, as well as Christians, have been deluded by the brand of bullshit that Mike Pence shovels out.

Both Jews and Christians think that Israel is for the Jews. Well I have a ticket on the clue train for them.

Israel has nothing to do with the Jews. Israel was created to establish a beachhead in the Middle East for energy corporations to extract oil. Nothing else.

These corporate titans don’t give one rat’s ass about the Jews.  

Unfortunately, the Jews are going to find that out the hard way when some bright individual either  figures out an alternative energy source besides oil or invents a way to get 100x the efficiency out of a drop of oil.

Then they’ll know the truth which is what Mike Pence should’ve stated at that conference.

Here is what he should have said:

“This is an administration that stands with our beachhead for oil in the Middle East!  Today it is my honor to say: If the world knows nothing else, let the world know this: America stands with our beachhead for oil in the Middle East.  We stand next to our beachhead for oil in the Middle East because we believe in might makes right, evil over good, tyranny over liberty. Support for our beachhead for oil in the Middle East is not a partisan issue. It is a corporate issue.”

Now that would be the truth.

Now, if you are the kind of person who believes that Israel is for the Jews, let me ramble.

Jews have been persecuted by Christians since the day Christ walked on the planet. That’s a lot of years. Why in 1900 years was there no serious move by Jews to go back to Israel?

I’ll tell you why. 

Oil. 

Edwin Drake discovered that you can get oil out of the ground in 1858.  

It was only a matter of time before man figured out that the Middle East was rich in oil.

It was only a matter of time before the elites figured out that oil was essential to warfare.

It was only a matter of time before the elites figured out a way to secure the oil in the Middle East.

Thus Saudi Arabia.

Thus Israel.

To build a state out of nothing takes real money.  It’s not a matter of putting up a sign saying “Jews Welcome.” People have to be organized. Speakers have to speak. Institutions need to be created and financed. Paramilitary organizations need to be clothed and fed.  This takes real money. This kind of money doesn’t come from nickels and dimes from the local synagogue.

The Jews were weaponized by the elites to secure a beachhead in the Middle East.  That is why Israel is armed to the teeth. That is why Israel has nuclear weapons.

When the Middle East is no longer necessary to the securing of riches for the elites, the elites will drop it like a hot potato.

The Jews will be left there holding the bag wondering where everyone went.

Which is why it is essential that the Jews who plan to live in Israel construct friendly relationships with their neighbors.

That would include the Palestinians.

Israel’s Success

How Israel can succeed.

If you are Jewish you are certainly interested in Israel‘s success, and not just for today, but for a long, long time, perhaps eternity.

How can you attain this?

Well the best way to cement Israel’s demise is for Israel to behave as it does today. Which is poorly.

Your success in life is directly dependent upon how you treat other people.

There is no substitute for it.

Likewise, no technology, device or stratagem can protect you from your own malfeasance.

If Israel persists in treating the Palestinians like shit, shit will happen to Israel. There’s no escaping it.

What goes around comes around.

Now, of course that will not happen today or tomorrow. Israel is too strong.

The people who run Israel today are committed, to put it mildly.

But what about the next generation and the generation after that.

History has shown and demonstrated that succeeding generations are often less committed than the generations that preceded them.

People forget.

People also do not appreciate that which they are given for free.

It is a certainty that future generations of Israelis will be less committed and less wary than the Israelis who rule today.

What will not be forgotten are the misdeeds and measures of humiliation that Israelis commit against Palestinians. These will be handed down father to son, mother to daughter for thousands of years. They will be woven into the culture of the Palestinian people. They will never forget.

They will have all the time in the world to avenge their ancestors.

In time, this will prove to be Israel’s demise.

It’s a mathematical certainty.

To avoid this, Israel must mend its ways.

And the sooner the better.

Now, of course, hardliners in Israel and members of the Likud Party will dismiss this advice.

How do you convince people who are convinced otherwise?

With patience.

The temptation is to kick them in the nuts, but that won’t work especially since they can kick harder.

What will work is a soft patient approach.

A Good Leader

A good leader is a good listener.

A good leader is never afraid to hear a contrary opinion.

Unfortunately in the world we live in today, we have many bad leaders and people in charge.

Our leaders are afraid of contrary opinions.

They are afraid that what they want to implement will be negated by the contrary viewpoint.

This is the sign of a weak individual.

This is the sign of a weak leader.

This was in evidence today as CNN tossed Mark Lamont Hill off the air because he voiced support for Palestine.

The people in charge at CNN, who work in league with our leaders who are Zionists, could not  handle a contrary opinion, so they threw him off the air.

It’s akin to an ostrich burying its head in the sand.

The contrary opinions will not go away because you do not air them. The contrary opinions will still exist.  They will merely go underground. Indeed they will go underground and work to subvert your plan.

A good leader takes account of a contrary opinion and says to himself, “Hey, maybe I am wrong. Maybe I got this wrong. Maybe I should consider changing or modifying my viewpoint.”

Sadly, this will not be forthcoming from our leaders. And there is a good reason why.

A Palestinian state gets in the way of their money making machine, or so they think.

But maybe it doesn’t. Maybe having a viable Palestinian state will ensure peace in the region which will be better for the powers that be in the long run.

Unfortunately for us, our leaders ignore our opinions.  They consider themselves far above us intellectually.

That makes them bad leaders.

And you know what happens to bad leaders?

In time, they get strung up like Mussolini.

No matter what the government is, if the leaders of the government do not address the needs of the people, in time that leader ship will be deposed.

What is Antisemitism?

What does it mean to be antisemitic.  There are various definitions, and there is some controversy afoot these days as to what constitutes antisemitism.

Let’s leave criticism of Israel out of the discussion for now.  This is a bogus addition that has no merit.

One popular definition says that you are antisemitic if you do harm to Jews because they are Jews.

This seems fair at first glance, but is this inclusive enough?

What about those who do harm directly to Jews without intending to do harm?   Is that antisemitic?

I would argue that it is.

What about those who do harm to Jews indirectly by creating or encouraging a climate of hatred toward Jews without intending to specifically harm Jews (judging by their own words)?

This would include people like those Nazis who claim they never gave an order to harm Jews.  Yes, one could argue, but you fostered or encouraged a climate that led to violence against Jews.

This would also include Adolf Hilter for those people who say, “The Fuhrer did not know,” or “The Fuhrer did not intend for things to turn out this way.”

Irrelevant.

So, antisemitism, accepting what I say, is more broad than doing harm to Jews because they are Jews. That definition is more appropriate in defining volitional discrimination.

Antisemitism is when you do harm to Jews.

But wait a minute.  Isn’t Israel Jewish?  So isn’t harm to Israel then antisemitic?

Good point.

First, Israel is only Jewish when it wants to be.  When it wants to promote itself as a multicultural society it proudly points to Arab MKs.  

Second, Israel currently abides by the precepts of Judaism to the same degree that the US abides by the precepts of Christianity which is to say dead zero.

Third, is a nation, a corporate entity of sorts, a person? 

No.

To say more is to say less. 

Given what I have spoken to thus far, is Israel’s current leadership antisemitic?

Yes, and they have been for some time.

The Likud Party and their radical fellow travelers have created a culture of hatred against Palestinians that has engendered horrible living conditions for the inhabitants of Gaza and the West Bank.

This dire situation has resulted in the BDS movement and enmity toward Jews around the world.

It does not matter whether Bibi intended for things to turn out this way.

It has.

And now you know what Israel must do in the Middle East.  It’s as clear as daylight.

Israeli Bluster

So the latest Israeli blowhard to enter the arena, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan, states that Israel is closer than ever to entering Gaza to attain security for Israel’s citizens.

Tough talk.

Let’s see how tough he talks in a few months after Israel decides to undertake this mission.

Will Israel win?  Well, it depends upon how you define win.

One thing is for sure, Hamas and the Palestinians have nothing to lose.

Given the horrid conditions they are living under, given Israel’s determination to take the West Bank, given growing world support for Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it should be clear to the Palestinians that they have little to fight for save honor.

They’re certainly not fighting for Lady Gaga to give a performance.  No, luxuries are not at the top of their list.

I would say they are fixing their bayonets right now.

Israel should be prepared for that.

The problem that Israel faces is not its own means or determination but its overconfidence.

Their young anonymous soldiers have been fed a steady diet of lies about Palestinians for fifty years now.

Israelis have come to accept Palestinians as subhuman cockroaches who celebrate a culture of death.

I don’t think that’s true.  I think Palestinians very much love their children and neighbors. And like Jews they want to be part of the future world.

Any people under siege and outgunned will resort to suicide bombers.  The Japanese did, the Vietnamese did, the Palestinians did.

And what do you know? The very first suicide bombers were the Jewish Zealots who conducted knifings against Roman soldiers in the first century.

Knifings, huh?

So the Jews wrote the book.

The Palestinians are the students.

They learned from their teachers and engaged in suicide bombings.

They’ll do it again

They have nothing to lose.

They’ll do what they have to do.

And more. Humanity is inventive, and necessity is the mother of invention.

Missiles once directed at cities will be more efficiently directed at patrols.

It’s a closer shot with a greater chance of success

Is Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan ready for this?

Is he ready for house to house combat?

I suppose that with proper planning and careful attention to detail it is possible that Israel can achieve a sweeping victory over Hamas with a minimum of bloodshed.

One of Israel’s assumptions may be poor:   That Hamas and Hamas alone is responsible for the instability in Gaza.

In other words, get rid of Hamas and the problem goes away.  This seems to be the same logic that the US bought into during Vietnam:  Get rid of the Viet Cong and the Vietnamese will be peaceful.

Well, the Vietnamese people were the Viet Cong.

In Gaza, I suspect, the Palestinians are Hamas.

Israel, prefers to believe its own bullshit.  They prefer to believe the lies they’ve been promoting through the Western media about Hamas surrounding themselves with unwilling human shields inside nursery schools.

It fits their narrative.

Israel also prefers to believe in their own superiority and the unassailability of the IDF.  This confidence is bolstered by their rabbis infusing them with the nonsense that they are God’s chosen people and that God gave them Israel.

Well, 1) God picks no favorites, 2) God doesn’t give any land to anyone, and 3) God distributes intelligence evenly throughout the spectrum of humanity.  You’re here after millions of years of evolution; if you were that genetically inferior, you and your people wouldn’t be here.

Still Israel believes its own bullshit.  It points to its Nobel Prize winners as proof of Jewish superiority never once asking itself whether other religions emphasize awards and accomplishments let alone Nobel Prizes.

Suppose other cultures emphasize a renunciation of wealth, possessions and awards.  What then?

Hey, here’s a thought: Shouldn’t a master race consider such and temper its arrogance.

And if it does not?

Well, wars aren’t fought on paper  or in the minds of the self-deluded as Israel is about to find out.

Yes, they can kill many Palestinians and “win”.

But at what cost to themselves and the future Israel?

It’s important to ask questions.  The more high quality questions you ask, the better the result generally is.

Does God see everything?   Does God see what hardships Israel has inflicted upon the Palestinians in Gaza?  Do we live in a moral universe?

These are but a few questions the Israeli blowhard, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan, might ask first.

Intelligent people ask questions.

Phonies, Paint and Sportsmanship


Lately there is talk of Bibi of Likud, President for Life, 
 rushing to the peace table because he fears a three front war against Gaza to the South, Syria to the East and Lebanon to the North.

This seems not credible.

With vast superiority of weaponry, Israel should fear no one.  The US will not permit Israel to lose.

Jews in Israel may have qualms about genocide, but I can assure you that our de-Christianized maniacs in charge in America have no such reservations. They’ll insist upon it, then tell Anderson Vanderbilt and Sheer Insanity (both puppets and beneficiaries of the New World Order) not to talk about it.

As it is the citizens in the US have barely a clue what is going on in Gaza.

If Hamas exists it is because Israel (and the US) desires it.

Despite the rhetoric from Hamas, Israel can finish off Hamas in a few days anytime it wants.

And it will if need be.

The recent peace initiative is bogus.

Israel’s leadership does not want peace and neither does Hamas.

They are both warriors and terrorists at heart.  War is what they were born to conduct.

For them it’s either total victory or being brought home on your shield.

Bibi wants all Palestinians removed from Gaza. 

He clearly stated a few years ago that he would not permit a Palestinian state west of the Jordan River.  His actions to date indicate his desire remains the same.

Hamas wants Israel eliminated.

Short of that they both desire the spoils that war brings them.  And generals always get the perks.

The losers are the people stuck between the gladiators.t

But it need not be this way.

When leaders can not make peace the people must.

There is no other way.

Someone brave must end this standoff between the Hatfields and McCoys.

A simple meeting of musicians or sportsmen usually breaks the ice.

Short of that, ignoring these fools in both Likud and Hamas would be a good start.

Talkers talk, walkers walk.

Both have talked enough bullshit over the years.

There is a marvelous scene in the movie Lust for Life in which a young Vincent Van Gogh is fervently preaching to his congregation. One man standing at the back listens, identifies Preacher Van Gogh as a phony and waves him off before exiting the church.

We should do the same.

Maybe Bibi of Likud, President for Life, missed his true calling.  

Maybe he should have been a painter.

Or a soccer player.

Come to think of it, he was, and a pretty good one.

Maybe he should play soccer with the Palestinians.

A little sportsmanship would help.

Friends and Enemies

There’s no logical reason why Jews cannot live alongside Palestinian Muslims.

They are not natural enemies.

Indeed, they are brothers.

Mohammed modeled Islam off Judaism, which helps explain why both share similar traits and customs.

Certainly they are not a threat to each other operationally.

Here is why.

Both religions are rules oriented.  To be a member means that one must obey many procedures, dictates and customs.

Learning such rules takes time and extensive acculturation.

As such, it isn’t likely that a member of one is going to abandon his religion in order to learn another which also has many rules, but different, requiring a hefty investment of time.

People are generally lazy.

It’s much more likely that a member of one of these religions will join Christianity which has few rules.

Other than accepting Christ as your savior, doing unto others as you would have others do unto you, and renouncing wealth which few Christians obey anyway, it’s a nobrainer to go from a rules-based religion to Christianity. Which many do.

You mean that’s it,asks the potential convert.   Jesus, where do I sign up?

Christianity stands as the true threat to all rules-based religions which is why Christians  have been traditionally persecuted all over the world in different eras by many religions including pagan religions.

Rome gets bragging rights.

Contributing to this threat is Christianity’s missionary zeal, its commitment to spreading its good news, its fervor to convert everyone to Christianity.

The stands in contrast to the Jews who have no interest in converting anyone unless the person applies and then jumps through many hoops.

It is this reluctance to proselytize and convert which enables the Jews to live side-by-side amongst Muslims in peace.

Hence Judaism does not serve as a drain on Islam.

Nor is Islam a threat to Judaism.  Even though Islam seeks to convert, Judaism is not viewed as low hanging fruit or prime meat because of its low volume and non-desire to convert Muslims.

So what results is a symbiotic relationship between Jews and Muslims. 

Which explains why the Jews followed the Muslims when the Christians kicked the Muslims out of Spain.

And why Jews, barring a major shift in the religion, will always prefer Muslims over Christians.

Close examination will reveal great working relationships between Jews and Muslims spanning centuries.

What you see going on in Israel and Palestine today is an aberration fueled by greed, greed fueled by another religion which hasn’t yet defined itself as a religion but is one nonetheless.

The religion is called Corporatism and it seeks not to convert but to destroy.

It requires that you abandon your religion completely and accept its amorphous, numb doctrine of consumption and whatever bullshit it’s selling.

But it has no empathy and desire to understand your plight. Having no mind,  it runs roughshod over those standing in its way.

It identifies an enemy and takes it. It mindlessly asks its adherents to annihilate the perceived enemy.  It only requires that you obey.

There is no God of decency in it.

Truth means nothing. Lies are its currency.

And so Jews who are not Jews supported by Christians who are not Christians – having converted to Corporatism – work together to destroy Palestinians with impunity.

Corporatism is a pernicious, malicious, and malignant religion.

It arose from the void left when people abandoned their religion.

It took the simplicity and zeal of Christianity and fused it with the obedience of Judaism plus the idea that this Earth is all that there is.

Follow me and consume all.

It is the doctrine of a cancer cell.

It takes no prisoners.

It will destroy Jews and Muslims alike.  

Christians too.

How to Fix Gaza

Let’s begin with how not to fix Gaza.

What won’t work is what’s being done now.

What will work is what’s not being done now.

Israel should allow unrestricted free flow of goods and services into the Gaza Strip minus of course the obvious – nuclear materials, jets, weapons and so forth.

Justified?  No.

Workable?  Yes.

They should allow those Palestinians who wish to return to their homes within Israel proper the opportunity.

Crazy? Seemingly.

Workable?  Yes.

A small percentage of Palestinians will desire to do so. Many I suspect will remain where they grew up – in the Gaza Strip.

Should the Palestinians fire rockets, the Israelis should take a bunch for the greater good.

A good leader has to take a little blowback.

By not retaliating excessively, the Israelis give peace a chance.

What passes in Gaza can be a model for the West Bank.

Tear down the ugly, ugly checkpoints and barriers and allow people to live where they want to live.

Permit Palestinians free access and free rights to travel.

Will there be more bombings and stabbings?

Yes, but every society has problems.  It takes time to heal wounds.

Instead of creating new enemies, try doing what you know is counterintuitive, unjustified yet workable – patience, understanding and kindness.

Reparations would be a good step.

Yes, but will an olive branch or an offer of kindness be slapped away?

Initially, yes.  People are upset.

In time, the violence will fade.

Long before people were Palestinians and Jews they were people.

And what people want is a happy life, a chance to make a few bucks and the opportunity to contribute.

Give them that, and they’ll be on their way peacefully.

As for the knuckleheads and hardliners who refuse to adjust, well, every society has those.

Treat those people as common criminals not as representatives of Palestinians who desire to annihilate the state of Israel. 

Sometimes you have to try to not  look too hard.  A little benign neglect might help.

Yes, but won’t Israel cease to become a Jewish state?  

No, because elections, like elsewhere, are a joke, a ruse to pacify the masses.  

As Mark Twain once said: If elections mattered, they’d never let us vote.

So too in Israel.

Which is why Israel has no fear of Muslims who, until the creation of the state of Israel, lived peacefully with Jews for centuries.

So live peacefully together again.

Arabs and Jews live across the street from each other in the United States.

Do what we do in America:  Romanticize your past with lies that never happened.  Create heroes who perform impossible feats like throwing a shekel across the Jordan River.

People eat that up. 

The alternative to doing business as usual will be far worse.

As a former soccer player, Bibi should understand that it’s never good policy to underestimate your opponent.

The player who has the upper hand and thinks that he has the game all wrapped up soon finds himself on the losing end.

So, assuming that Bibi, President for Life, decides to have a change of heart, can what is suggested here be implemented?

Not over night, that’s for sure.  There has been too much suffering.

Changing everything overnight would be disastrous.  It would be like asking a hard-core heroin addict to go cold turkey.

It’s not like the people are being asked to give up chocolate, which by the way was relatively unavailable to the people of Gaza prior to 2007 thanks to restrictions.  

Hatred like heroin is powerfully addicting.

But if a reasonable but not ridiculous goal of twenty years was set, there is no reason why change can not occur at 5% per annum.

It sounds like it’s worth a try.
