Arab Zionist in America?

The Jewish Week reports on the recent visit of Imam Omar Abu Namous of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York to an Orthodox synagogue. He is reported to have "stunned" the Jews there by saying,

“Why shouldn’t Israel agree to a one-state solution and incorporate the West Bank and Gaza into that state? There would be two administrations, one for Jewish affairs and one for Christian and Muslim affairs. No one will take a Jewish person’s property and [Palestinian refugees] will not return to Haifa and Jaffa.”

The article reports that this was not received favorably. But isn't the dream of Religious Zionists to have one state between the Jordan and the Meditteranean? Aren't monotheists permitted by Torah law to live in Eretz Yisrael by accepting the Noachide laws? Don't Moslems (according to almost all opinions) and Christians (according to many opinions) have the staus of monotheists? And aren't non-Jewish monotheists supposed to set up their own courts under the Noachide laws?

In this particular encounter, it was the orthodox Rabbi who supported a "two state solution" -- dividing the Land of Israel. Could it be that an Arab Muslim is more Zionist?

The Swing

How do you like to go up in a swing,

Up in the air so blue?

Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing

Ever a child can do.


Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all

Over the countryside


Till I look down on the garden green

Down on the roof so brown
Up in the air I go flying again

Up in the air and down!
