Solution to Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Monday, 16 June 2003 12:00 AM

In order for anything substantive to occur in the perpetual motion conflict is to assume facts that flat-out are not ever going to be in evidence. Regardless of whatever Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas may SAY, he can’t deliver.

Therefore, in an epic demonstration of presumption, I propose a solution … hang in there, it’s coming (so I buried the lead).

Despite the facts that

Here is MY naïve, simplistic solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

In order to end the violence … GIVE THE PALESTINIANS A COUNTRY to call their own.

We don’t like to admit it, but right now we own Iraq. Notwithstanding protestations to the contrary and the myriad denials, the United States will decide what does or does not happen in and with Iraq. Sooooooooo, I propose we do the same thing the Brits did in 1947: Whip out a crayon and make a new map.

Carve off a portion of southwestern Iraq and call it Palestine. Make it about the size of Israel. Hey, it ‘might’ even have some oil under it (unlike Israel). We could slice off that southwestern nipple of Iraq and give the Palestinians Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Iraq as neighbors.

We could and should do what no Arab country ever has … create a homeland for Palestinians.

This is not as cavalier a concept as it may appear. Analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats suggests this could be a major plus.

Remember,

So I submit it is time for another “do over” … this time including the creation of the independent and sovereign country of Palestine.

Hey, it could work … maybe.
