Yessireee, proposing The One-State Solution for Israel, which he refers to as Isratine (rhymes with Ovaltine?):
It is a fact that Palestinians inhabited the land and owned farms and homes there until recently, fleeing in fear of violence at the hands of Jews after 1948 — violence that did not occur, but rumors of which led to a mass exodus. It is important to note that the Jews did not forcibly expel Palestinians. They were never “un-welcomed.” Yet only the full territories of Isratine can accommodate all the refugees and bring about the justice that is key to peace.
Assimilation is already a fact of life in Israel. There are more than one million Muslim Arabs in Israel; they possess Israeli nationality and take part in political life with the Jews, forming political parties. On the other side, there are Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Israeli factories depend on Palestinian labor, and goods and services are exchanged. This successful assimilation can be a model for Isratine.
Of course Muammar conveniently forgets to mention Hamas. Muammar manages to bring up the Egyptians, the Romans, the English, the Russians, the Babylonians, the Canaanites and even the Germans, but the world “Hamas” never once shows up in the entire article.
