Since the United Nations solution to the homelessness of European Jewry was to create Israel at not inconsiderable incovenience to Palestians, and

since Israel, since it is so comfortable and prosperous is going to stay right where it is, perhaps the UN should consider locating Palestinians in a new homeland.

USAmerica sure has a lot of federally-held in its western states.

Alaska is resource rich and practically empty.

All those reich-wing Christian fundamentalists in Kansas are going to be raptured any day now, and I'm sure they won't mind letting the Palestians move in after them! Besides, there is a hotly disputed temple mount nearby just a few miles over the Missouri border in the "New Jerusalem." (Independence Mo.) heeheeheehaw

Utah has a river Jordan that flows into an inland sea...and the Heber (Khever) Valley isn't far away.

Patagonia's pretty empty.

Or y'all could give 'em Alberta!

So you want to dispossess already-dispossed Aboriginal peoples in the US, Canada, Argentina and Chile to settle the Palestinians

Guess it never ends, eh?

O Lagatta...I said nothing about giving the Rez over to the Palestinians!

But seriously, yes, it never ends. That's the point, isn't it?

Somebody has to be the first to say "it ends here." That somebody might as well be Israel.

I still like the Patagonia idea though.

Sorry, but I am failing to see the joke.

I am trying, but I am really failing.

Not funny, not funny in the least. Alan, don't you understand that your laughing at people who have been disposessed for over half a century?

Your also making the common, (and somwhat backward assumption) that in order for the palestinians to get their land back Isreal would have to cease to exist and Isreal's jewish population would have to leave the country. This is not true.

Yeah, I think upon further reflection that this thread is just going to cause a flame war, so I'm closing it.
