I like the idea of threads as referenda and would very much like to know what the consensus here is on this thesis:
The only real solution to the Israeli-Palestinian (etc.) conflict, aside from having a new, far more secular and freedom-loving government, is for the
land that is now known as Israel, West Bank and Gaza Strip (assuming the Golan Heights is given back to Syria) to be made a new nation with an
entirely new name, flag, anthem etc.
It will or would be the formal recognition that monotheism is the root of their problems.
There needs to be an unprecedented Lightening Up where humor is officially-or-formally regarded as a (if not the) most valuable tool for the
mental-emotional well being of humanity. In that spirit I, with utmost sincerity, would prefer said Mediterrenean land of ancient rivalries to be
renamed Doodley Squat.
