A Quip Transmuted to Reality by Raymond Speer

Author says: what if a quip was transmuted to a reality? Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).

In 2010, June 7th: Ms. Helen Thomas, a long time journalist aged 90 (an advanced age by human standards) answered a vague question about Israel ("What about Israel?") with a cynical and perhaps humorous answer that the imhabitants of that country should migrate back to "Germany, Poland and America".

That was professed to be tasteless in that Jews (the ethnic group in question) had been given no choice in the 1940s on their future and that Israel had been settled by survivors who had luckily emerged from the death grounds of Poland and Germany, given unceasing support from the people of America, most of whom were not Jews.

Thomas instantly retired in advance of being fired for that remark and died soon afterwards, remembered only for that comment. Inside of twenty years, the Third World War saw the rise of the Caliphate and the Caliph mercifully let the million Jewish survivors of the Sack of Israel be relocated in colonies to Poland, Germany and America. The Caliph interpreted Robert's statement as a serious statement issued by God.
More fear-mongering....lol Congrats to Helen Thomas for speaking her mind!!!!! And btw only Pseudo-historians who spend more time playing civilization video games than reading books would come up with some ridiculous nuclear Islamic Caliphate theory.... ~ reader's comment.

Fully a third of the Israeli survivors took root in Poland, whose native population had been hard hit by the blood burn virus, and another third were offloaded to Germany, where thirty cities had been destroyed in nuclear holocausts. None of those Israeli settlements expanded in population during the remaining years of the 21st century.

In the United States of America, the Israelis prospered most in the Mountain and Great Plains States. Considerable anti-Semitism existed in the USA, a consequence of wide spread American blame on Israel for the damage that WWIII did on the USA when it got involved in war while backing Israel. But in large part, the newcomers were welcomed by their new neighbors.

Another nuclear armed war demolished the Islamic Caliphate along with the Latin American Eco-Patrimony. A dearth of military targets in North America meant that we extrastellar explorers usually make contact with the Jewish variety of humans because they are fully some fifty percent of the remaining humans in North America and Europe.

Imagine what would be, if history had occurred a bit differently. Who says it didn't, somewhere? These fictional news items explore that possibility. Possibilities such as America becoming a Marxist superpower, aliens influencing human history in the 18th century and Teddy Roosevelt winning his 3rd term as president abound in this interesting fictional blog.
