Tom Friedman advises 'Palestinians' how to get rid of the Jewish state

This is news that's fit to print?
May I suggest a Tahrir Square alternative? Announce that every Friday from today forward will be “Peace Day,” and have thousands of West Bank Palestinians march nonviolently to Jerusalem, carrying two things — an olive branch in one hand and a sign in Hebrew and Arabic in the other. The sign should say: “Two states for two peoples. We, the Palestinian people, offer the Jewish people a two-state solution based on the 1967 borders — with mutually agreed adjustments — including Jerusalem, where the Arabs will control their neighborhoods and the Jews theirs.”
Tom, do you really think that's what the 'Palestinian' goal is?
If Palestinians peacefully march to Jerusalem by the thousands every Friday with a clear peace message, it would become a global news event. Every network in the world would be there. Trust me, it would stimulate a real peace debate within Israel — especially if Palestinians invited youth delegations from around the Arab world to join the marches, carrying the Saudi peace initiative in Hebrew and Arabic. Israeli Jews and Arabs should be invited to march as well. Together, the marchers could draw up their own peace maps and upload them onto YouTube as a way of telling their leaders what Egyptian youth said to President Hosni Mubarak: “We’re not going to let you waste another day of our lives with your tired mantras and maneuvering.”

Crazy, I know. Bibi is reading this and laughing: “The Palestinians will never do that. They could never get Hamas to adopt nonviolence. It’s not who the Palestinians are.”
Hey Tom - the 'Palestinians' won't ever do this. You're organizing a march of Israeli Leftists. No one in Israel listens to those morons anymore.

Take a break, Tom. Go cover the Sudan or something.

Friedman has always acted as a promoter of an anti-Israel agenda. (How else would he maintain a position at the New Duranty Times?)

His much-touted "Saudi" peace plan is so absurd and untenable that the Israeli negotiators should have rejected it out of hand from the day it came to light. Now, he is running a very dangerous interference against the viability of the Jewish state. Our leaders need to call him out in public and tell him in no uncertain terms to shut up.

There could be peace today if Abu Bluff told his own people in Arabic, "We the Palestinians, accept Israel as the Jewish State - as the homeland of the Jewish people."

Don't hold your breath waiting for that to ever happen - or for Tom Friedman to cover it.
