The 19th-century British prime minister Lord Palmerston once joked about a thorny diplomatic question of his day that, “Only three people have ever really understood the Schleswig-Holstein business—the Prince Consort, who is dead—a German professor, who has gone mad—and I, who have forgotten all about it.”
But while the Schleswig-Holstein question might have been hard to understand, the Israel-Palestinian question is not. Indeed, as Dennis Prager explains in this short lecture, it couldn’t be simpler.
To be sure, while the question is simple, the solution, all too obviously, is not. It has defied the best efforts of men and women of good will for 67 years.
