The United States of "Isratine"

I love this country. We get exposed to all points of view.

Today, Qaddaffi, yes, the Muammar Qaddaffi has a op ed article in the NY Times. He has an interesting point, that the pathway to peace for the Israel situation is not a split set of Nation States (Israel v. Palestine) but a unifying one-state solution. Seems to work for the USA, why not form the United States of "Isratine?"
In absolute terms, the two movements must remain in perpetual war or a compromise must be reached. The compromise is one state for all, an “Isratine” that would allow the people in each party to feel that they live in all of the disputed land and they are not deprived of any one part of it.
Certainly we know that inclusion tends to work better for fostering peace than exclusion. He may, indeed, have a point.

Wow! I'm having flashbacks to 1947. Sometimes the old solutions are the best solutions.

Muammar Qaddaffi? How funny that he outlived his Nemesis Ronald Reagan, to promote peacful coexistence.
