Den Beste, on the other hand, writes a much better (if chilling) analysis of what Israel's actions would entail. I'm not convinced that the other arab states would let Israel dump the Palestininans in Lebanon (they'd have total war, practically instantly, probably ending with half the muslims on the planet willing to take up arms and anti-semiticism higher than it's been since the early 20th century), but it's certainly more compelling and better written that Privateer's "I'm not bigoted at all against the arab filth" screed that I linked to below.

Again, though, it's important to keep in mind that the entire Palestinian people could want peace and hope that peace talks would succeed, but as long as this "Palestinians are not individuals but a herd of animals" thought process continues unabated, then all it takes to ruin the aspirations of both peoples is a group of terrorists that don't care about their fellow humans, but just want their glorious conflict. What's tragic, however, is that I honestly doubt that even expelling the Palestinians would end the terrorism. It'd just become less common, but far more brutal when it happens.
