Robert has a nice suggestion

Reader comment on item: Achieving Peace Through Israeli Victory
in response to reader comment: Jews as Citizens of Disputed Palestine

Dear Dr Pipes, your reader Robert suggests that Israel should settle Jews from all parts of the world in the territories incorporated within Israel. I think that won't be a bad idea.

In the current times, only Islamic politico-religious regions of the world have policies that are designed to grow the population of the majority religion. Most other countries are democracies that allow people to choose and live under free will. There is no reason why the rest of the world cannot give some Islamic medicine to Muslims.

I have thought of this scenario in the context of Indian Kashmir. While Kashmiri citizens of India are allowed to buy property in all of India, no Indian citizen is constitutionally allowed to buy property in Kashmir.

The most interesting part is that while every country of the world encounters the problem of illegal immigration, our friends in Indian Kashmir have no such problem-- no Indian in his right mind wants to go and settle in Kashmir legally or illegally. Illegal immigration problem solved!!! Our islamic friends make every region which they occupy inhabitable for everyone else.

In this context it is perfectly OK if Israel decides to settle willing Jews from around the world in the territories that it controls.
