You know, it's so crazy it just might work. Actually, given the stake that both the Jewish and Palestinian diasporas have in the conflict, maybe the next peace conference should include representatives of both in addition to the Israeli and Palestinian governments.

One thing I think Ibrahim has wrong, though - American Jews don't "pay for Israel's economic well-being." Israel has a $100 billion economy, very little of which comes from American Jewish remittances. The Israeli government relies on American Jews for political rather than economic support, which still gives them leverage but of a different kind.
