It has become rather dreary to see the parade of one American after another who explains, earnestly, that if Israel would only remake itself after their own image, all would be well. "States should have nothing do with nations!" Uh, that's nice, although I'm sure America's First Nations would like to disagree. Tell you what, Judy: if Armenia and Turkey merge, or maybe Greece and Turkey, and then France and Germany, followed by Iran and Iraq, and maybe Ethiopia and Eritrea, or Sweden and Finland -- certainly, Israel and Palestine can merge the next day. Until then, you can keep your revocations of peoples' right to self-determination to those under your dominion, which is to say yourself. Lovely that you'd like to start a revolution in international law. I'm afraid you don't get to instrumentalize Israel as your ground zero.
