Credit where credit is due

Jerusalem Post - - COMMENT & FEATURES -

Thank you, David Eli Bar­chas, for tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity to change the mind­set of Pales­tinian lead­ers to de­mand a cap­i­tal in Jerusalem (“Jerusalem vi­sion,” Com­ment & Fea­tures, Novem­ber 12).

If Mr. Bar­chas’s claim is cor­rect, he can also claim credit for set­ting back the prospect of peace for many years. And while we are giv­ing credit where credit is due, I also want to thank him for re­mind­ing me that no mat­ter how id­i­otic some of our peace so­lu­tions are (e.g., pro­vid­ing the Pales­tini­ans with weapons), there is al­ways a worse idea around the cor­ner.

I am also im­pressed that one who never lived in the same city with peo­ple hos­tile to him can pro­fess to know what a Pales­tinian cap­i­tal shar­ing Jerusalem with­out a di­vid­ing wall would be like. Such per­spi­cac­ity – or is it just ig­no­rant chutz­pah?
