The Iranian Solution

The President of Iran who wants to wipe Israel off the map suggests that its remains should be deposited in Austria and Germany. There's actually a germ of a good idea here.
The nutcase, speaking in the supposedly holy city of Mecca:

“Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces and they insist on it to the extent that if anyone proves something contrary to that they condemn that person and throw them in jail...”

Actually he has a point there. He continues:

“Although we don’t accept this claim, if we suppose it is true, our question to the Europeans is: is the killing of innocent Jewish people by Hitler the reason for their support to the occupiers of Jerusalem?” he said. “If the Europeans are honest they should give some of their provinces — like in Germany, Austria or other countries — to the Zionists and the Zionists can establish their state in Europe. You offer part of Europe and we will support it,” he added.

I can't imagine that Israelis would be happy to be surrounded by a bunch of miserable Teutons. But when things get really bad and we and the Israelis are in a full blown war with Islam, a similar approach could calm things down, as follows.

1. Israel leases for (say) 200 years an area equivalent to its current size from a trustworthy country with space and resources that Israel can exploit - Australia, for example.

2. Israel relocates, funding the transfer by selling off its non-portable assets, so Israel is left empty.

3. The West introduces an "repatriation policy" of automatic deportation to the old Israel of all immigrant Muslims criminals - families of suicide bombers, inciters of Jihad, families of honor killers, those who refuse to integrate, common criminals etc.

Israel currently supports 6 million people, and with cruder Islamic technologies and expertize could perhaps manage half that. The US, UK, and Europe have between them about 12 million Muslim immigrants. MI5 estimates about 10% of Brit Muslims are terrorist supporters, to which we can add the same percentage that will never integrate, totaling 20% - so there's plenty of room for them in the ex-Israeli desert.

What's not to like? Israel is safe, Australia richer, the West free of Islamic infestation, and if things get nasty we can use nukes in the Middle East without fear of fallout damaging Israel.

If this seems far fetched, consider how the west should react when Iran uses its nukes on an Israeli, Brit or US city.
