My Mideast Punchlines: what a gas!

The first buyers of natural gas from Israel’s newly-discovered offshore reserves? Why, the Palestinians, of course. We’re talking about a $1.2 billion contract to supply a new West Bank power plant for 20 years.

Small FistI can hear the strangled screams from the BDS movement abroad. After all, why boycott Israeli goods when the Palestinians themselves don’t? What a gas!!

 

Why are some Israeli Arab leaders so vociferously opposed to Israel transferring a number of Arab towns to a future Palestinian state?

Small FistBecause they don’t want to wake up in the morning to discover that they are citizens of a Palestinian state – with all that that implies. Freedom of speech, equal rights for women, etc. NOT! Nobody sane who has tasted true democracy would ever want to live under tyranny, theocratic or otherwise.
