Poor "Palestinians"


The Palestinians will, in fact, get their de facto state, though one that may be
now cut off entirely from Israeli commerce and cultural intercourse. This is an
apparently terrifying thought: Palestinian men can no longer blow up Jews on
Monday, seek dialysis from them on Tuesday, get an Israeli paycheck on
Wednesday, demonstrate to CNN cameras about the injustice of it all on
Thursday — and then go back to tunneling under Gaza and three-hour, all-male,
conspiracy-mongering sessions in coffee-houses on Friday.

Thanks, Naomi!
