Forget a two-state solution. What about "Isratine"?

That is what Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi asks in today's NYT op-ed. Carefully specifying that the holocaust is undeniable and that the Jews never forcibly expelled any Palestinian in newly created Israel, he says assimilation is the ony key to peace in West Asia. This is what he says: "Assimilation is already a fact of life in Israel. There are more than one million Muslim Arabs in Israel; they possess Israeli nationality and take part in political life with the Jews, forming political parties. On the other side, there are Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Israeli factories depend on Palestinian labor, and goods and services are exchanged. This successful assimilation can be a model for Isratine"
