Politburo Diktat: Thomas Friedman, Arafat Mouthpiece?

The Commissar writes an open letter to Ariel Sharon, warning of the same tactic that Yasser Arafat is pushing by stealth, but that Thomas Friedman appears to espouse openly -- the "one-state" solution:

To start, watch out for a certain reporter/worldbeater, friend of Saudi royals, ... da, the anti-zhid himself, Thomas Friedman. ... He and that Palestinian hottie, Diana Butto, are chatting, oh-so-earnestly, about "one state solution." Da! What if Palestinians say, "No problem. Israel exists. From Jordan to Mediterranean. All of historical Palestine. Is good country. We fly Star of David flag over our homes. NOW GIVE US VOTE."

What will happen then? Do you think America would allow the Palestinians to exist within a Greater Israel without a vote? Of course not, and we shouldn't. But what will that lead to? It leads to the overthrow of Israel as we know it, replaced by yet another Arab thugocracy led by Yasser Arafat and his Fatah cronies, and there isn't a thing the IDF can do about it. This, by the way, is the reason that a two-state solution is in Israel's best interests, but only when the Palestinians recognize Israel's right to exist in its present state. The Israelis recognize this, which is why even Ariel Sharon has been willing to meet with a reasonably independent Palestinian Prime Minister.

But if the Palestinians invoke either a one-state solution or the "right of return" and Israel withholds the vote from the Palestinians, Israel will lose American support, and rightly so; we don't cotton to countries who deny a vote to a group of people based on race, ethnicity, or religion. And what would happen to an Israel that loses American support?

But what do you think your Zionist security depends on? Your Fence? Your IDF? Your air force? Your nukes at Dimona?

NO. These are details. Your security depends on Amerika. Take away your Amerikan support, and it is over. We are talking Yad Vashem - The Sequel, "coming soon to a region near yours. Live. And in Technicolor."

You bet that's what will happen. Read the whole thing.
