There once was a nice Jewish man named Albert Einstein who endeavored to explain the meaning of the universe. He was also a supporter of Israel, but I wonder if he would support the Israel of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? I suspect the people of Israel could use someone who might explain the origin and development of the current crisis in which Palestinians are using various strategies in order to vent their anger and frustration. I do realize anyone who dares to write that Palestinians are “angry” or “frustrated” is undoubtedly a self hating Jew. Yesterday, a member of the Palestinian government was killed by Israel soldiers. Ziad Abu Ein was engaged in a terrible display of this Palestinian anger by endeavoring to plant trees in an area that Jewish settlers were once again taking land that originally belonged to Palestinians. So Palestinians are crashing cars into Israelis, throwing acid at innocent Jewish families, and yelling and screaming.
So, if Albert Einstein was alive today, he probably would offer this piece of advice:
1. Sit down with Palestinian authorities and announce that Israel will recognize the new nation of Palestine.
2. Agree to evacuate all but 5% of the West Bank and place all Jewish settlements in that 5% area.
3. Announce that Palestinian refugees would be allowed to return to the West Bank area and a yearly $1 billion Israel fund would provide for 200,000 a year to come home.
4. Establish an Economic Union with Palestinians, Jordan and Egypt in order to foster economic cooperation.
It does not require an Einstein to figure out how to end this anger!
