The Lyrics

Despite intense persuasion by international leaders, Palestinian President Abbas asked the UN to declare his people a nation, in an attempt to bypass direct negotiations with Israel. This request likely will pass the Security Council but be vetoed by the US. Following TOS, I wonder why they all just can't get along.
The Arabs and the Hebrews should be friends.
Palestin-yans and Israelis should be friends.
One man wants his Statehood now,
The other likes to trace God's vow,
But that's no reason why they can't be friends.

Territory claims are sticky questions;
Nineteen forty-eight began this flap.
Hebrews banish Arab squatters,
Arabs can't stand Jews in their lap. (repeat)

I'd like to say a word for the Hebrew:
He built out West Bank, made a lot of changes.

He claimed our West Bank, built a lot of fences,
And built 'em right across our battle ranges.

The Hebrew is a good and peaceful citizen,
No matter what the Arabs say or think.
You seldom see him linkin' up a war room
Unless somebody else is on the brink.

But the Arabs and the Hebrews should be friends.
Palestin-yans and Israelis should be friends.
The Arab slopes when bowed on knees,
The Hebrew kneels when uttering pleas,
But that's no reason why they can't be friends.

Territory claims are sticky questions,
Wary for the games that set a trap.
Hebrews' stance with Arabs totters,
Arabs fancy more land to snap.

I'd like to say a word for the Arabs:
They'll goad for peace talk if the Hebrews start it.
They bide their days to see every Hebrew in Red Sea,
Assured there'll be no Moses there to part it!

The Hebrew should deal cautiously with the Arab;
If he slides by a checkpoint bent on slaughter,
Won't treat him like a guest, send him to eternal rest,
Reassured that virgins after life are hotter!

Territory claims are sticky questions,
Where historic God and Allah bless.
Hebrews' chance with Arabs falters,
Arabs cancel the peace process.

AFW: Thanks, but I wonder what "good ideas" you mean; "it's a puzzlement."
A&H: On the world stage, their leaders are very civil, but you're right.

Out of the park, Barry -- out of the park! So Abbas has gone to the U.N. to try to get his "state." I love how John Bolton said that Disneyland could go to the U.N. and be declared a state, but that would not make it so. I doubt we shall see the "Palestinians" dancing to "Havah Nagilah" any time soon. Too bad -- they have a better life in Israel then in any other country in the world.

BJM - You don't need a U.N. mandate to give us more on this subject! Salaam and Shalom (even their words for peace are silimar!). ;D

DM: Thanks for the baseball analogy at this time of the season. True, Arab nations won't give Palestinians a homeland either.
OMR: Thanks; the Middle East will continue its gifts to parodists.
