The Jerusalem Solutiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
What say if Jerusalem was broken down block by block (excavating the really old crap too) and tossed into the Med? Problem solved. Those wogs would have nothing to fight about and the rest of us could get on as well.

Bad for "business".

Who's business? If it and everything on it became fish food, the only business that would suffer would be the media with less to report after the initial hoopla.

Anybody read Tom Clancy's "The Sum of all Fears"? So-so yarn, but in the beginning is an interesting angle on how Jeruselum becomes an independant entity along the lines of Vatican City, patrolled by decidely non-decorative Swiss guards. (This after the Palestinians discover the power of non-violent protest and the Israelis overreact a la Kent State.)
Worth a read (at least the first 100 pages IMHO).
I think the whole world is beginning to tire of the intransegence on all sides of the issue. reminds sometimes of my kids who sometimes fight just to remain the focus of attention. But, hey I don't have to live there.
and besides: I'm Irish. What would I know about mindless religous extremism?...
