Using the steep decline in casualty rates among both Israelis and Palestinians over the last several years as a guide, peace has indeed arrived. Lets make it official and sign the land swap documents as equals, no longer as a state dependent upon the whims of another state, a condition all too familiar to Native Americans. The Book of Numbers model since 1967 has favored Israel while it expanded at the expense of the Palestinians. If the pressure continues the end result would be a physical genocide similar to Joshua's massacre of Jericho. The Geneva Conventions, UN votes, and other sources of International Law cannot be nullified by Israel. The Book of Numbers model must yield to Babylonian captivity of Israel by the United Nations, where the wolf and the sheep feed in peace, where Isaiah's prophecy will spread from. Israel, accept your supervision by the layers of government above you, submit to God and respect the rebuilt Temple of Solomon, the United Nations.
