Everybody sing, to the tune of That’s Amore:
When your own house is seized and they won’t let you leave
When you can’t get to work, stopped by gun-toting jerks
When they sleep in your bed, fill your neighbor with lead
When the law simply states you’re a second-class race,
Bob Simon of 60 Minutes offers a long-overdue, eye-opening, unbiased explanation of the current state of the Israel/Palestine situation. He also deduces the future: due to continued construction of illegal Jewish-only settlements in Gaza, there are now only three logical paths to the resolution of the conflict:
Demographers predict that within ten years Arabs will outnumber Jews in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. Without a separate Palestinian state the Israelis would have three options, none of them good. They could try ethnic cleansing, drive the Palestinians out of the West Bank, or they could give the Palestinians the vote. That would be the democratic option but it would mean the end of the Jewish state. Or they could try apartheid – have the minority Israelis rule the majority Palestinians, but apartheid regimes don’t have a very long life.
Which of the three paths will the conflict take? After watching this CBS report, it’s apparent the Israelis have already taken the path of apartheid.
