BREAKING NEWS: Hamas fills in tunnels, Israel dismantles nuclear weapons
In an unprecedented move, Hamas and the Israeli government have taken bold steps to change the face of the conflict and the Middle East. Hamas has declared that it will lay down its arms, and in a show of good-faith, they are filling in all their tunnels. The Israeli public has reacted with shock and disbelief. Israel, not to be outdone, has announced the dismantlement of its nuclear and chemical weapons, and calls for a regional convention on nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The Palestinian public is waiting to see evidence of Israel’s weapon dismantlement.
To maintain momentum, the Palestinian Authority has called for Hamas and the Israeli government to build a peace-trail along the 1967 borders, funded by money that Hamas once used for tunnels, and Israel once used for weapons. Both sides are arguing about who will provide the kiosks and food along the peace trail, and currently government officials are debating whether the best hummus comes from Israel or Palestine.
The Israeli and Palestinian public are invited to join their leaders in a walk of peace.
What if this were our news? What if Hamas and Israel attempted to outdo one another in actions of good faith? What if we had mutual trust and understanding? Everything would change. Happy April Fool’s Day.
