The Ultimate ‘Star Trek’ Insult


After nearly seven decades of conflict between Israelis and their Arab neighbours, the only real progress achieved seems to be that of finding ever more efficient ways to kill each other.

With the passage of 65 years, during which time thousands of lives have been lost and many others blighted forever, the prospect of an equitable solution to much of the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis still seems just as distant as ever before.


Are the mental faculties of humankind insufficient to take on the task? Isn’t 65 years long enough for some definitive plan to have emerged and resolved the issues? Must our thinking on the matter always remain so limited, permanently confined to a two-dimensional plane and unable to explore any other?

The answer here will require all dimensions to contribute, even that of the infinite.

We may never be able to do much more for the situation as it now exists.

But that does not absolve any of us from trying to change it with the very best means at our disposal.
