As predicted, the moratorium on West Bank settlement building has expired and the Israelis are breaking new ground. With their population growing, they simply need more space to expand their horizons so the Jewish people can breathe. Unfortunately for the current occupied occupants, in order for the Israelis to breathe, the Palestinians must be suffocated.
Like two western gunmen squaring off in the middle of town at sundown, the Israelis are telling the Palestinians and what’s left of the civilized world, there just ain’t enough room in the area for both to coexist. Somebody has to go and the sooner they go the better. That somebody of course is the Palestinian people, as the Israelis have all the guns, armored vehicles, a world class military, plenty of money and the blessing of the United States Congress. But don’t feel too sorry for the Palestinians, as they have homemade and hand-me-down rockets, rocks for their kids to throw, anger and a shit-load of pride. Unfortunately, if we were betting people, our money would be on the Israelis. This situation is like David and Goliath, except this go around Israel is Goliath and the Palestinians are the Davids.
Now those who know their Biblical history, you’ll realize David kicked Goliath’s ass big time, but Goliath didn’t carry automatic weapons or sit on a stockpile of nuclear deterrence. So, this current conflict can only end in one obvious way; the complete transference of the Palestinian population to some place else on the planet. In the view of the few remaining free thinking minds on earth, the policy of Transference has always been a cornerstone of the crazed Israeli Right-wingers. For those morons so gullible to have bought the line of serious peace talks for decades, they are finally getting a glimpse of the underlying strategy. While we would agree, this current state of affairs appears hopeless, we refuse to close this posting without offering a solution to the people of “Palestine”.
We say take the offer to relocate. Now we know they may have to travel south a bit, since America’s co-conspirators, Egypt and Jordan, won’t consider taking any rag tag bunch of refuges. So we offer the logical solution the right wingers of the Israeli government have been pushing for years. The Palestinians can go to Hell. When all is considered, this is not as bad an option as one might think. Hell has a warm climate, one can do just about anything one wants to do in Hell and most importantly, Hell can’t possibly be any worse than the hellish conditions the Palestinians are living in today.
We say: Out with the old and in with the new
