Dear Dr Pipes, it is good to see Debanjan Banerjee commenting on your blog again. But those of us who have been reading your blog for some years know very well that Debanjan Banerjee, at best, is an islamist. He follows the Taquiyya doctrine to the letter. In the past he once suggested that Islamic immigration to Europe was the right way to undo the past wrongs (I may be forgetting the exact details of his argument).
Debanjan is at it again. This time, he suggested very innocently that Arabs and Jews should live under the same democratic system in Israel. Here is what he said exactly, 'Why not have "One Israel" for both Jews and Arabs. Why not offer voting rights to those Arabs in Gaza and West Bank?'
Middle East is loaded with Islamic republics with whom Mr Banerjee is enormously impressed. I have a slightly different proposal for Mr Banerjee. Let me see if this proposal makes Mr Banerjee happy or uncomfortable.
You see, if there are so many happy and hearty Islamic republics in the ME we can create a Jewish Republic of Israel in which Jews can create their Caliphate-equivalent and Muslims/Arabs can live as some sort of dhimmi-equivalent. The Jews can, then, grant Muslims a few seats in their parliament, offer them protection, and get some Jaziya-equivalent taxes in return. Apostacy out of Judaism can be threatened with murder. Every one can learn and advance Hebrew. Some Rabbi can rule this great Jewish republic in all fairness under the guidance provided by God in Torah. And, then, we can wait until this Jewish republic becomes 98% Jewish.
What can possibly be wrong with this set up? The entire Palestine, Gaza-strip, and Israel under one great Jewish-caliphate-equivalent!
What do you think, Debanjan Banerjee?
Wish you a very happy and prosperous 2017.
Thanks and regards with best wishes
