That's a fascinating angle, and one that never occurred to me. I guess it was
the Nazis who were indirectly responsible for inflicting the Israelis on the
Palestinians. My hunch is that the Palestinians do _not_ consider their
enemy's enemy their friend. IOW, I imagine they think Mein Kampf is as full of
balderdash as the Torah or Das Kapital. In which case they'd be correct for
all the wrong reasons. The problem for transhumanists is how to debunk _all_
religions equally.
