Such a move would open the door to the third option – creating an Israeli version of Puerto Rico, a PA province that does NOT vote in the Knesset, but is autonomous in its administration. It would have to coordinate its economic, educational, communications and security standards with the State of Israel. That way we control the education curriculum and with G-d’s help prevent a diet of hate for the next generation, and end the constant incitement that is being fed to this one. Peace, at last, for all.
It’s win-win. Of course, the international community will hate it. It will deprive the Arab nations of their weapon against Israel. But it will allow the Palestinian Authority Arabs to finally have a normal life. It will get the political monkey off everyone else’s back. And perhaps we can all get back to the business of being neighbors.
Without anymore American assistance.
