    Let's start with the first two scenarios: Israel is destroyed (presumably by Arabs/Palestinians) and Palestinians are destroyed by Israel: In this latter case, writes our disingenuous Cassandra, Israel is boycotted, isolated, demonised...and in the former case? Perhaps Ms Atwood would breathe a sigh of relief at the removal of people she hates unto death, yet dares to advise on how to live... So odium, or civil war (no.3) or atom bombs (4&5) collective suicide through peace with murderous partners (ask the Spanish, or the Byzantines or the Christian Kingdom of Jerusalem how that worked for them, Little Miss Prophetess!) that would be No.6. And then the final flourish...let's give up the settlements to the tender mercies of the Arabs, who will settle for Jizya... What a fool, a blind deaf and stupid fool wrote this? No, wait! It was a "novelist", so-called, who once before saw the future as women dressed in red bearing surrogate babies for the male elite... Prophets see what nobody else can, Marge! You have taken your biases, your hatreds, your anathemas, repackaged them into pabulum, called them visions...and have sold them to the highest bidder. Keep trolloping Margaret; you probably need the moolah!
