Leonard Nimoy has joined the chorus of those who would see Jerusalem divided to satisfy the hungry maw of Islam. Ynet reports that the 80 year-old actor supports the two-state solution, as interpreted by Americans for Peace
at any price Now.
This interpretation is the standard eternal truth (of the moment): the two-state solution is the answer, endless Israeli concessions are the method.
This, of course, is logical, but it doesn’t account for the force of emotion. The warrior religion of Islam, as interpreted by all the entities that surround Israel, demands the elimination of Israel and of Jewry.
I propose a subtle readjustment of the two-state solution mantra. First, the Islamistas publicly accept Israel’s right to exist. Second, they accept all Jews as their equals – in the Near East and everywhere else. Third, they disarm all the bandit groups that, for decades now, have spent all their money and more-than-ample free time terrorizing Israel. Fourth, they all sign peace treaties with Israel. Fifth, after a generation of peace for Israel and a generation-long reeducation of the Palestinians so they’re no longer the Sudeten Germans of the Near East but a real nation, the two-state solution in implemented.
How’s that for logic, Mr. Spock? Look: you get your two states living side by side. You get peace. And everyone has free access to Jerusalem because it remains under Israeli control.
What? You say that it’ll never happen?
You got that right!
