Imagine a world in which the Israelis have been imprisoned in 20% of their current landholding as the result of an invasion by the Saudis (citing historical ownership of the temples). Imagine that the Saudis undertook this activity with the political and financial support of the US Congress, and maintained oppressive control over the 20% with the political connivance of the US Congress. Imagine that the US Congress does all of this because the Saudis are using their money to manipulate the US political system.
Imagine that the Saudi lobbyists hold endless meetings to boast about their control of the US political system and that one of these meetings is attended by a tired, good-hearted, Israeli who is willing to give anything for peace.
Imagine that the Israeli asks a question and the Saudi billionaire says “If you had to have a Jew in the room, this is the best one”. I am stunned.
