Letter to the Editor: ... Could be amazing

The Jerusalem Post

December 5, 2008

By James Adler

Sir, - In his book Old/New Land, Theodor Herzl envisioned an Arab prime minister and a Jewish president. I believe Israel's election of a first Arab prime minister would be even more helpful and historic for Israel than Barack Obama's as president already promises to be for America. How could it fail to transform Jewish-Arab, Israeli-Arab and even Israeli-Iranian relations?

Picture the Arab and Muslim worlds suddenly having to confront an Arab Muslim Israeli premier elected predominantly by Israeli Jews. Would it not instantly boost recognition, respect, peace and security - to an unimaginable degree?

And then picture the impact when the prime ministership peacefully reverted to a Jew; and then, some day, to an Arab again. This realization of Herzl's vision would truly show up as a lie the Islamist and apartheid ideology of al-Qaida and terrorists such as the Mumbai attackers.

A pipe-dream, maybe. At least, for now. But we all know what Herzl said about dreams becoming reality. As Post editor David Horovitz urged during the recent splendid concert visit to Israel of Sir Paul McCartney: Imagine.
