No difference between the leaders and the led

Reader comment on item: My Optimism about the New Arab Revolt

Submitted by Abu Nudnik (Canada), Mar 2, 2011 at 16:37

They both think the Jews did it, whatever it was, either keeping the dictators in power or fomenting their popular overthrow. To the Arab street, it's all done from Jerusalem with long strings of the puppet master. Some have the USA holding the strings of the puppet Israel but on one thing they agree: they are powerless but superior and Israel and the USA must die.

The optimism is touching but deluded especially in the face of a wave of Western survivors' guilt and self-loathing, "running after other gods."
