    I think this is one of the misconceptions that is holding back the Middle East from acheiving a Peace Settlement. What the heck is wrong with Jordan that Jews can't buy land (or live over there; I'm not too sure about this point so I enclosed it). What the heck is wrong with Queen Rania that she won't allow a Hebrew edition of her book? See? That's what's wrong with this whole thing. That stuff about Gandhi was romanticized by Hollywood. There are parts of Zionism, I don't adhere to like the purity stuff. It's even getting Israel in trouble with the Reform and Conservative Jews over here. People have manipulated both the Jews and the Muslims. The Muslims are a unreformed lot but we're not encouraging them to reform with our own extremism. If we are going to have any impact on improving our relations we are going to have to be Super Smart. If we want Israel to last forever, we also are going to have to be Super Smart. We want to live together. We want our children to live in peace. We want our nations to be strong. But look you guys. This offshore drilling thing has exposed the USA as a beached whale. So until the USA shuts down all those platforms as a danger to our security and sovereignty, Israel can't totally depend on us to help. The Oil Companies and dependence on Gasoline have compromised the security and sovereignty of the United States. Shucks! So Burston, "You know what you gotta do. It's not just going to take Jewish Brawn. It's going to take Jewish Brains to allow us to survive through what appears to be a long intermediate period of time before the USA can be Number One again. Anyway, stick with Dr. King, not Gandhi. What did Dr. King do a lot of? He talked to Lyndon Johnson a lot. So what needs to happen is this. Both you and Erekat need to get in there somehow and tell Barak and Netanyahu what they need to do so the whole place doesn't tear itself apart! Iran is another story. I just hate the midget!
