It takes place every night. At 9 PM New York time Piers Morgan takes to airwaves at CNN where he interviews celebrities, politicians and newsmakers. Recently, he was in Israel, where he dedicated the full hour to a face-to-face with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The next night he talked to PLO representative to the U.S., Maen Rashid Areikat who responded to Netanyahu’s claim that Israel had no partner for peace.
The PLO representative made it clear. “The Palestinians have already made an enormous compromise for the sake of peace,” he claimed. “They have agreed to a two-state solution.” Wow! Silly me! Why didn’t I think of that? Why did this down-to-earth veracity never cross my mind?
I guess that my logical reasoning points me to believe that when one offers to give away something he is not in the possession of and will never be, he engages in a con game. For all I know, Israel could play along, provided that con games are in fashion nowadays.
