They will resist any attempt at conquest, and if push comes to shove, they’ve got nukes. The only circumstance in which they will agree to be driven to the sea is when they happen to fancy a daytrip to the beach and go by taxi.

My major disagreement is that I'm not sure a one state democratic secular solution is best. On the other hand, I'm not sure it's wrong either.
