If Only They Were Normal -5 – Ehud Olmert

While israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert feels a peace agreement will be in place by Monday, it’s going to take some time before complete troop withdrawl from the region is seen. The fighting has been going on for over a month now and over 1,000 lives have been lost. Olmert is a notable hawk, “Disengagement is a response to certain demographic realities, … Within a few years, due to the higher Arab birth rate, Jews will become a minority in the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. I don’t want [Israel] to be South Africa because we don’t believe in apartheid. We simply have to separate from the Palestinians so that we can control our own destinies.”.

But what if he were normal?

“Barry Plunker and I were sitting around sipping yerbamati the other day. We got to thinking, ‘wouldn’t it be rad if Rainbow Gatherings were held in areas of conflict?’ Imagine all the vibes coming off the hacky-sacking and drumming. We could fly hippie youth in from around the world and just OM our way to peace. This weapons bit sucks. Let’s embrace spirituality and realize we’re all one blood. You know, those Arab hookahs were probably intended to keep the peace. I’ll give Hassan a call right now, I think he’s ready to drop the religious b.s. too and start singing some John Lennon with me. I hear he plays a wicked lead mandolin and hey, I’m kinda rusty but I used to play a mean recorder. Like, all I am saying is give peace a chance”.

    Yup I only wish if they were normal. What a great song it will be if Olmert and John Lennon would sing together:

    Imagine
    John Lennon
    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today…

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one

    Olmert – better known for his hit single “Give War a Chance”.

    This is a great series, Scout.
    Rather than see them eventually fall off the bottom of the page, what about grouping them all together under an “If only…” heading under your links.

    Yerba mate and hookhas…hmm… I’m hearing sitar music and feeling somewhere between nothingness and eternity..yeah, that’ll work.

  • 4. Scout  |  August 12, 2006 at 10:17 pm

    anon…that’s such a true classic. i think we should have olmert and hassan jam on it.

    alison, ya, i’ve actually go the olmert cd with that song…didn’t get an autograph though and use it as a cup coaster. gee thanks good suggestion on the links bit. btw, if anyone hasn’t check out alison’s Creekside (click on sidebar links) here’s a woman that can put a cynical slant with a slight twist of citrus on things….sort of like bringing the acrane to the populous.

    q, i spelled yerba mate wrong…and hookhas. that’s me 🙂 . even still , i feel like i’m connecting with you on a cosmic level . there’s, there’s a sense of past present and future all at once……somehow a past life , egpyt maybe…kings and queens…..wait, a camel just entered the picture. dang, it’s me. oh well, i never wanted to be royalty and this way i get to spit on them.

    Hahaha! Good comments! btw, I like camels.

    Indeed, imagine what a different world it would be if people put their differences and greed aside and decided to live as human beings. Yes, we can dream, can’t we? Lennon’s songs are classics, and this is one of my faves, and so is “Give Peace a Chance”. All words I try to live by…
