Support for a Palestinian State?

Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas sat down for a discussion on a Palestinian State but Netanyahu wanted to tell a story first.

He spoke, “Moses was hot, so he went to the Jordan, took off and folded his clothes and went for a swim. When he got out, his clothes were gone. He stopped a passing Israelite and asked if he had seen his clothes. The Israelite said, ‘A Palestinian stole them.’…”

Mahmoud interrupted, “Wait! There were no Palestinians in Moses’ day!”

Netanyahu said, “OK, now that that’s out of the way, what did you want to talk about?”


That’s it, all I had to say. You can’t hit a home run every time, but even a foul tip can be someone’s take home prize.

  3. When I was in Israel last year, I had the opportunity to listen in on a discussion between a high level official from the Israeli government and a Palestinian professor. It was most enlightening with regard to the Jewish/Palestinian conflict. The Palestinian man’s basic argument was “give us the land we want and we will give you peace”. Obviously the Israeli government doesn’t want to give away any more land….and they should not give it away. The Palestinians have been given land in the past and it did not bring about peace, so to think that a land for peace deal with solve the problem is very naive. The land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people. Period. Just my opinion.

    • Obviously my observation is a joke, one that I have been retelling since the Camp David Accords, but it does underscore the fact that the land was Israel’s long before the Palestinians tried to lay claim to it. Should they be able to live peacefully together? Absolutely. Should a land for peace swap work? In theory. Will it? No, remember, Communism works in theory.
