New York, NY (PRWEB) September 20, 2006 –
In this week’s free issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Weekly Humor Magazine, reports that, after decades of militant resistance to the inevitable, Israel plans to recognize Palestine’s right to exist. Palestinians, who have by now grown used to the belief that they are the ones who get to decide which state has a right to exist, were bewildered by the surprise announcement.
They also puzzled over whether it means they really ought to acknowledge Israel's right to exist.
The Hamas faction of the proposed unity government remained particularly confused, demanding Israel explain exactly what it means by its recognition of Palestine’s right to exist.
Hamas also insisted that any recognition of Israel could only be addressed after certain recurrent provocations were ended, such as militant Jewish grandmothers acting as suicide bombers and malcontent Orthodox Jews firing rockets into Gaza and the West Bank that are loaded with matzoh balls.
Undaunted by the intense confusion among Palestinians, Israel continued to forge ahead with its innovative plan, saying that, even if Hamas refuses to recognize Israel's right to exist, it plans to move ahead independently to recognize Palestine.
Israel’s continued insistence on recognition of Palestine only served to cause even more head scratching among Palestinians, with the leader of Hamas declaring, "What do the Israelis mean? I don't know what the ramifications of such a go-it-alone policy are. I have to think about it. We're a state, but they're not? How does that work?"
Ehud Olmert said, "In Yiddish we call what we gave them a real kinnahurra. But it's for their own good. We can only hope they eventually figure it out."
