The alternative

Reader comment on item: Mr. Olmert Visits Washington
in response to reader comment: I agree with this article 100% but what are the alternatives?

Th Alternative has been spelled out by the league of nations in 1922, a workable plan which has never been truly revoked or abrogated. A Jewish homeland where Jews are sovereign and arabs are guests. welcome guests if they recognise jewish sovereignty, repatriated guests if they behave unsalubriously.

The notion that the old green line means anything is ludicrous since there are more Palestinians with Blue Cards (Israeli ID) than Palestinians in Judea Jerusalem and Samaria with PA cards. The convergence plan does nothing to address the impending imbalance of Blue Card holders, and therefore the claim that it will reinforce the jewish Majority is plainly false, misleading, fraudulent and demagogue-inspired.

Arabs oppose the plan not because it will harm their chances of eliminating the jewish State but because it might achieve international recognition of any border, even if it was one inch away from the sea. The notion that convergence plan lines will be easier to maintain and protect are ludicrous because this solution has been tried twice, and twixe failed. Once during the 19 years prior to 1967, and twice after the 1994 withdrawal from the PA cities. In all cases every inch of ground given over to Arab control is a piece of ground from wheich war and terror are launched.

The only good outcome of this plan is the probable fall of the Hashemite kingdom, which will instantly create a Hamastan. That almost happened in 1970, and only American stupidity and israeli servility prevented this wonderful outcome from being actualized
