Ok, so its really not, but here's a good way for the negotiations to begin!
The Prime Minister of Israel sits down with Arafat at the beginning of negotiations regarding the resolution of the conflict. The Prime Minister requests that he be allowed to begin with a story. Arafat replies, "Of course." The Prime Minister begins his story: "Years before the Israelites came to the Promised Land and settled here, Moses led them for 40 years through the desert. The Israelites began complaining that they were thirsty and, lo and behold, a miracle occurred and a stream appeared before them. They drank their fill and then decided to take advantage of the stream to do some bathing--including Moses. When Moses came out of the water, he found that all his clothing was missing. "Who took my clothes?" Moses asked those around him. "It was the Palestinians," replied the Israelites--... "Wait a minute," objected Arafat immediately, "there were no Palestinians during the time of Moses!" "All right," replies the Prime Minister, "Now that we've got that settled, let's begin our negotiations."

The Arab countries would be more pro US if we didn't give any money to Israel in first place. (circa 1948 to Today) We probably wouldn't have had a Trade Center attack on 9/11, would have saved the US about 120 Billion dollars, and we would have had no reason to talk about oil embargos because an Arab country was upset about our alliance. Oh, there wouldn't have been an Israel. I guess what it comes down to, "Why care if there is peace in the Middle East." Besides oil from the Arabs... and the fact Israel plays NO real part in US interest. Let them hammer out! Literally....
