    And like Marcel Duchamp, will ask: what's the chair? Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlav has an empty chair who tells meaningful stories that go far beyond the cheesy, teary "Poor Palestinians Inc." soap opera, which could have been a state in 1948 and 1993 and 2000, were it not for their maximalism, hatred and terrorism. May theyget their state finally, in peace and dignity, free of their cynicism, and may they learn to grow beyond symbols of disposession into proactive adults. There is an example in Salam Fayyad. If Hamas with its charter, sponsored by Iran and Syria, is part of it, may they get a veto instead. It's about peace and ending bloodshed and an intractable conflict that Palestine should be about, not about being pathetic.
