I'm not a naturally political person. I don't like to rock the boat on any subject and there's no way around getting sea sick if politics are on the table. But sometimes my feathers get a little ruffled. If you know me, you might have a hard time picturing me with anything but well-preened feathers, but today...I'm ruffled!
On the radio I heard that Huckebee is in Israel and commented to someone or some group or whatever that "it would be unrealistic to have a Palestinian state in the middle of Israel." That may not be exactly what he said, but it's what the radio reported. Immediately I was ruffled. Really? Unrealistic? Because you say so?
Well, I say poppycock.
Know how I know that it's not unrealistic? Because it exists already.
I happen to have a friend on the inside, if you will. She really is. She currently lives in Palestine. So, it must be a real place, right?
I'm not so oblivious to think that there are easy answers to having a Palestinian state within Israel. But I think it's a bit naive to say it's unrealistic. Just because someone doesn't believe something is possible doesn't mean it's impossible.
So, let's go back to what we teach our kids...think before you speak.
I've thought. I've spoken. And, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go smooth my fluff.
