Is the Toy really worth it: A tongue-in-cheek view*
Getting Permanent Membership status:
In the next Miller Lite Ad:
An Iranian, a Colombian, a Basque and a Palestinian go to a bar. They order Miller Lites. The Palestinian swigs a regular brew.
The Iranian nods to the Palestinian’s drink and says “Hey you didn’t get a Miller Lite”.
The Palestinian shrugs and say “Na, I got one of these. What’s the difference?”
The Iranian shakes his head and exclaims “Well, that’s the second unmanly thing you have done today”.
“Yeah, what’s the first?”
Then it pans to a snippet of Abbas giving a speech at the UN demanding a permanent status.
“Yes, I guess that was unmanly”
Settlements: The Jews in the settlements seem to be dug in – to ride the property boom and flip the real estate. Look how it turned out for their brethren in Florida. Wait for the mortgage markets to crash in Israel (what goes up, must come down). First sign of Jingle mail and “Kha-ching”, you are in.
Two-State Solution: Now, has this ever worked out well for anyone? Ask Pakistan and Bangladesh how it turned out. It’s very rare for two non- contiguous parts of the country to survive as a single country. Alaska has made it as a productive harmonious part of the US for the past 50 years (if you do not count Sarah Palin). Canada, are you getting any ideas?
Accepting existence of Israel: You can see them, feel them, shoot them, bomb them, but you don’t acknowledge them. Well, that is the height of denial. [Sorry, Herman Cain, you have to try harder to get this award.]
Financial Aid: With Greece contemplating exit (before they are pushed overboard), you should apply to join the EU. With your healthy growth rate, the other EU members will welcome you with open arms (after frisking you for the other types of arms).
*Ow, I nearly bit my tongue…..
