He thinks he has found how to square the circle, meaning how for Israel to annex the whole of the West Bank without having to grant Israeli citizenship to any of its Arab inhabitants, without having to remove anyone from his home: Let Israel, supported by the rest of the world, just ask the Jordanian king - whose population is already now counting a large majority of Palestinians - to be so kind as to accept responsibility for two million more of them; to build for them roads, hospitals, schools, and so on, all that in the spaces left empty between our settlements; to collect their taxes, to conscript them into his army, to judge them, and to grant them right of vote in the elections to his parliament. This is Prof. Breiman's vision for the future of the Jewish state: Jews in the whole of Eretz-Israel, as a minority living at long last in perfect harmony in the midst of a majority of non-Jewish subjects of a foreign Arab ruler. The triumph of Zionism. The dream of Herzl and Ben Gurion having come true, after a 20 centuries long exile. The poor man must have fallen on his head.
