I like this!!!
VDH is such a realistic pessimist, yet this is the most sensible and optimistic piece I've seen on the Middle East.
Go, Israel, go!
old nexus of radical Islamic terror of the last three decades is
unraveling. With a wink and a nod, Arab dictatorships routinely
subsidized Islamic terrorists to divert popular anger away from their
own failures to the West or Israel. In the deal, terrorists got money
and sanctuary. The Arab Street blamed others for their own
government-inflicted miseries. And thieving authoritarians posed as
Islam’s popular champions."
now, terrorists have turned on their dictator sponsors. And even the
most ardent Middle East conspiracy theorists are having troubling
blaming the United States and Israel."
of State John Kerry is still beating last century’s dead horse of a
“comprehensive Middle East peace.” But does Kerry’s calcified diplomacy
really assume that a peace agreement involving Israel would stop the
ethnic cleansing of Egypt’s Coptic Christians? Does Israel have anything
to do with Assad’s alleged gassing of his own people?"
(Facts are irrelevant-just remember that. So yes, Israel and the JOOOOOOS will still be blamed for everything. Without the Beeeeeg Satan/Little Satan boogeyman, these people have nothing to live for.)
