    While the European Union decides on Turkey's acceptance in the EU, Palestine actually is better qualified to be part of the European Union. You see, it was the European Romans from Italy who first renamed Judah, the historic land of the Jews, "Palaestina" in retribution for the Jewish uprisings against Roman oppression. The Romans coined the word "Palaestina" based on the Philistines, ancient enemies of the Jews who originated from Europe, in Greece. More recently, the European British called the British Mandate Palestine that, after all, was historic Israel, Palestine was borrowed from their European Roman brethren from Italy based on the Greek Philistines.

    Thus, given its historic European roots, a persuasive case is made for Palestine's acceptance into the European Union. Palestinians are really British Italian Greeks in origin.

    No one wants to join the EU right now.

    I wonder if Israel will accept admittance into NATO in exchange for a sovereign Palestinian state based on the lands west of the Jordan River controlled by Jordan between 1948 and 1967. It seems the "attack on one member = an attack on all the members" clause would address the "indefensible borders" concern.

    There's no sound reasoning for it joining the EU since it's not culturally part of Europe (at least Turkey crosses two worlds).

    Wait until Italy comes due next year. There's well over 600 billion Euro debt coming due. That's more than Greece, Spain, and Portugal.

    I fear for Germany's solvency....

    Well, there's always China. :eusa_shhh:

    Should Palestine not be accepted into the EU, such as in Turkey's case, Palestine can alternatively be part of Saudi Arabia since in addition to being British Italian Greeks, Palestinians are also Arabs. :lol:

    Oh, that's right, the wonderful Arabs hate the lovely Palestinians, so, maybe, not such a good idea, after all. Never mind.

    Italy should be solvent (and would be if it weren't for what is essentially a bank panic). Anyway, there's a pretty broad agreement of what needs to be done to save the Euro, but no political will to do. I think it'll happen eventually.

    Why would Palestine board a sinking ship?

    Since Palestine was named by the Romans, maybe the Palesteenians can help bring back the Roman Empire.

    I agree, but I believe it will be restructured. It will not be the Union of today and there will be an even stronger 'central' authority. But I disagree with you on the view that this is a bank panic.

    Just wait and see. We can revisit this in the next year. :)

    The Roman Empire's decline began with the Jewish rebellions against their occupation and renaming Israel "Palestina" Maybe, the Romans can have a re-do and Israel can become part of Italy :lol:
