Facebook Fantasies

Myself included, Facebook is not known for being the foundation of forward thinkers. There is a new post going around, at least among Jewish and Israel based Facebook "walls" that goes exactly like this:
Bush Heading to Jerusalem

President Bush will be in Jerusalem on January 9th to push his
"Palestinian State in '08" proposal forward with East Jerusalem as the capital.
This is President's Bush first trip to Israel since becoming
president. His goal is to convince the Israeli public that a Palestine State
with East Jerusalem as its capital is in their best interest and he has
the support of the American people. 21,150 people have signed the urgent
petition to the president. Send this to everyone on your list and ask
everyone to do the same. We need 100,000 signatures so President Bush
knows that we will not support the U.S. dividing Jerusalem. He has
mobilized virtually the entire world behind this plan. If everyone will just
get four friends to sign this we will have the 100,000.
Vote your opinion now.


Now, just like the next guy, I'd like a list of those 100,000 morons just so I can point and laugh. There's nothing that amuses me more than a moron. People that listen to Israelisms Podcast know this. And to have 100,000 of them? sides hurt just thinking about it.

The amazing part of this nit-witted petition is that there is not also a petition to pour a few billion shekels into an urban renewal program in East Jerusalem, which is what it needs and which is what it would take. There is no petition to improve the school systems in East Jerusalem. There is no petition to insure that, since we insist on keeping ALL of East Jerusalem, every citizen has full rights as Israeli citizens there.

Be careful what you pray for, "Oh Ye Petition Signers" just might get it!

And you took something written on facebook as fact? With that said I don't disagree with part of what you said. We need to improve schools and the like. No question there. The residents of East Jerusalem of permanent residency status. They have already all the rights of citizens except for voting in national elections. They can vote in municipal elections. Within a 4 month time frame 3000 applied for Israeli citizenship ahead of the possible division of Jerusalem. Maybe its time we ask them?

In any case if dividing Jerusalem means dividing or losing the old city I am with the morons. If it means losing some of the areas around the old city such as the mount of olives I am with the morons.If Hamas and friends are not broken up I am with the morons. It will be history repeating itself as they target us from East Jerusalem. In fact until Gilad Shalit is back and the Qassams stop they can forget about it. The world community can help us there. So far they choose not to.
