    Gen James Jones is known to be the White House's lead proponent of an "Imposed Solution" toward a Palestinian state forced against Israel's will and whose security will be maintained under a NATO military contingent. If the current joke was likely to convey a message based on Gen Jones' known agenda, how about the following interpretation: - Taliban warrior = Palestinians; - Jewish store owner = Israel; - Restaurant = Pro-Israel US policies; - Water = Full Palestinian independence under roughly '67 borders without resolution of End of Conflict issues (as wanted by the PA and Gen Jones' Imposed Solution); - Tie: Status quo with Palestinian self-rule under temporary borders and Israeli military supervision until the PA commits to End of Conflict issues (as wanted by Israel and its supporters in the US).
