Useful idiot watch . . .

brings you Jimmy Carter. Hamas offers a ten year truce if Israel withdraws to its 1967 borders but will never recognize the Jewish state. This is a non-starter if there ever was one but watch for the fools who will call on Israel to respond with some concession or another to show "good faith."

Aside from other insanities, a "truce" means that every single Jew on Arab lands should leave but, Arabs should still be allowed to live in Israel.
I was in Scotland a few years ago and a woman asked me why the U.S. doesn't relocate the entirety of Israel to Maryland! No kidding... People actually think this kind of stuff...
Since then, I have fantasized what the former Israel would be if that happened. Of course, the Israelis would blow up every building of importance on their way out.Then I think of what would be there 20 years hence...
What do you think would be there?

It is ironic that the freest Arabs in the Middle East, are Israeli Arabs (about one sixth of Israel's population). They can vote, run for office (some hold seats in the Knesset), and live under the rule of law. The overwhelming majority of which have no desire to live under the Palestinian Authority.

If the Israelis left Israel, what remained would degenerate into what the Palestinan 'street' turned the last Gaza settlements into - a state of near anarchy.
