Tzipi and Harry

Tzipi Livni is Israel's Foreign Minister, acting Prime Minister, and a former Mossad operative to boot. Last week, the Jerusalem Post reported:
Kadima leader Tzipi Livni signalled on Thursday that she believed Israeli Arabs could best fulfill their nationalist goals by moving to a future Palestinian state.

"My solution for maintaining a Jewish and democratic State of Israel is to have two nation-states with certain concessions and with clear red lines," Livni told a group of students at a Tel Aviv high school. "And among other things, I will also be able to approach the Palestinian residents of Israel, those whom we call Israeli Arabs, and tell them, 'your national solution lies elsewhere.' "
Can you imagine what the uproar would have been if, in 1948, Harry Truman had said, "Okay, we'll recognize your shitty little country, hell we've even helped you steal it from the natives but now you Jews in America are going to have to realize that this a national home for Christian people--a Christian state--and your national solution lies elsewhere"?
