Bibi - a U.S. senator from New Jersey?

Actually, the real header of the interesting (eh, well, so-so) article by Bradley Burston is "Israel the 51st state". Not a very original one, but presented in a way that is worth to check out. It paints, albeit roughly, the consequences of Israel joining the Union of States as number 51.

One sentence attracted me especially:

"We know that Benjamin Netanyahu was born to be a U.S. senator from New Jersey."

There is an addendum, though:

"Failing that, Israel could send him instead."

Now, there is no need to hurry. Let's take it step by step:

1. Israel joins US

2. Bibi goes to Senate as NJ representative.

3. Then we shall see.

Talk about two birds with one stone...
