Israel's Moral and Practical Case

By Howard L. Adelson

Eugene Borowitz, May 12, 1978

The author argues that Israel needs to keep military control over all the land West of the Jordan river (i.e. the West Bank and Gaza, along with the rest of Israel). He endorses Prime Minister Begin's plan that would offer all people in the occupied territories a choice between Israeli or Jordanian citizenship, while maintaining Israeli control over foreign affairs and security of these territories.
