Dear Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: The Saudi Solution

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (Australia), May 22, 2016 at 03:40

Dear Dr. Pipes,

I suggest to you that these refugees (suddenly the Syrian ones) should be and must be resettled in the Israeli-administered Golan Heights. There are 2 benefits to this resettlement.

1. This will give Israel a much needed publicity boost which she has been lacking ever since the ill planned Gaza war in 2012. Israel now can claim that she is not just a land only for the Jews but is a secular democratic nation.

2. With Mossad very active in the region , Israel will find it easy to keep track of the potential IS recruiters amongst the refugee population. In this way it will help the US and rest of the Western world a lot of much needed intelligence headache.

I believe you will be supportive of my position. I would love your viewpoint on this one.

Thanks and regards with best wishes

Creative, for sure, but I don't think it's a great idea for Israel to allow in millions of potential enemies.
