Exodus II: Electric Boogaloo

This isn’t even close to the worst idea I ever heard:

The Next Iran. You can take it to the bank. Extremely optimistic alternative: Another Turkey (though I doubt it). My solution? We take over Mexico, buy it from them or something, and en masse, move Israel to the Yucatan peninsula. It lacks the Biblical back-story, but it gets one of the USA’s stoutest allies out of the middle of the Musselman basket of snakes, lets those hunyaps rip each other’s guts out.

On the other hand, “Next year in Quintana Roo” just doesn’t have the same resonance.

    If Only ! I think this would be a good idea, although it would take some time to get used to Going South of the Border for Lox & Bagels.

    Something similar has been tried. It didn’t quite work.

    Joseph Hertzlinger – there are some tiny differences in two, climate being the most neutral…

    I’d never heard of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast before. I tend to think the USA would be a better partner than the Stalin and the Soviets.

    Scott: you bet. BTW, even though official name is JAO, everybody born in USSR call it Birobidjan.
