I agree. And a question.

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Word Games

Submitted by Klara (United States), Jan 5, 2005 at 08:04

Dear Mr. Pipes,

Another excellent article. I especially liked the last paragraph - "Arabs may have fallen behind Israel in per capita income and advanced weaponry, but they lead by far on the semantic battlefield. Who, a century back, could have imagined Jews making the better soldiers, and Arabs the better publicists?"

QUESTION: Might one of the reasons for this situation be that the oil money of the Arab states buys lots of liars who are selling their souls to pen a lot of lies against the Israelis? Might the reason behind academia's fervor to demonize the Israelis be alos, that the same slick substance affords them the ability to buy lots of academics to do their shameful biddings?
