Letter: New Muslim state should offer land to Palestinians

We’ve all just witnessed the creation of a new Muslim state — a Babylonian caliphate birthed in violence and blood; like the inception of all states, much death, money and politics spent in vain.

Did you notice the word “caliphate”? Hate is an insidious disease, awful, powerful and again front and center in this Islamic State for all Jews and Christians as demonstrated by the destruction of centuries-old synagogues and churches, and the murder of their clergy, and the exodus of all those fleeing from beheading, crucifixion or a bullet to the brain.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if Islam truly is a peaceful brotherhood of like-believing folks who do love each other and us, too? Think of the possibilities, like a solution to the two-state dilemma of the Palestinian Authority and Israel. The PA has billions of dollars squirreled away by its late leader, Yasser Arafat; the IS could sell the PA, flush with cash, a piece of the vast new caliphate, and the Arabs, now squatting on Jewish soil, would have a new homeland bought and paid for with hard stolen money; a place of their own, so to speak.

Certainly this expansive caliphate of sun, sand and oil fields can use some new young caliphaters — malleable zealous men, burqua-wearing, child-bearing women — a whole labor force and tax base wanting to be mined for Islam. The consolidation of the IS and PA would also create a wide buffer from the Jews and Christians they so adamantly hate.

The IS could invest some of its new-found wealth in restoring and refurbishing the ancient city of Babylon to its former glory, which was the dream of Khaliph Saddam Hussein before he was deposed. He saw himself as the reincarnated Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon as the Muslim financial and tourist center much like Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.
