Schweitzer's proposal

Dwight Owen Schweitzer lists 18 points, truths that must be acknowledged. As he points out himself, there's enough in there to make everyone mad at him. (The one that hit my hot button: giving even a piece of Jerusalem to the "Palestinians.")

But such objections aside, this is by far the best starting place I have seen for a sane proposal.

On the other hand, I think it has a snowball's chance in Hell of being entertained for more than three seconds by the other side. Nonetheless, it could serve as a rallying point for our highly-fragmented team, and yet another demonstration to the world of our reasonableness.

And on the third hand, though I hate to admit it--it won't make a bit of difference to the world, who hates Jews for being Jews.
