There is nothing like a common enemy to unite two sides. Ever heard the expression "My enemy's enemy is my friend"? This is the foundation of my peace plan: The US appoints Slowman as peace mediator between Israel and the Palestinians, say. The Palestinians want US involvement? Give it to them this way. Over time, the two sides realize whom they are dealing with. They get annoyed to death by his sloooowness and duuuumbness, band together against him, and get rid of him in some joint operation. There is no bonding like joint war against a common enemy. Peace will follow for sure. You want another peace deal? How about Israel and the Syrians? Do the same thing, but you will have to go to the Himalayas to catch another Slowman. There aren`t many of those left in the wild, so this might become a real bottleneck. I suggest you start looking for a few Slowmen right away. Good luck, and Peace be on Israel. Inshallah. P.S. We, the Talkback contributors, are reluctantly willing to deprive ourselves of the services of a censor we grew to love to hate, but only because of the enormity of the mission. May his demise serve as our atonement. Amen.
