Middle East leaders never tell the Truth

Reader comment on item: Pipes criticises Middle East leaders

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Feb 13, 2005 at 16:55

Like I have pointed out in my previous message, I believe in peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

However, I agree when you, Mr. Pipes, criticize Middle East leaders.

Middle East leaders have got a pattern of lying to the infidels. Apparently, it is not a sin for a Muslim to lie to an infidel.

Arafat, whom you criticized in the past, knew that very well. He went to South Africa and said to his fellow Muslims that he would tell them a different Truth to the one he tells to the infidels. Abbas is no different. And Iraqi leaders are no different either.

In the West, this battle is about the way we receive what Middle East leaders tell us.

Liberals trust them and conservatives don't. As in the Cold War, conservatives are right.

This is a battle between conservatives and liberals before it is a war on terror.

Conservatism is the only ideology which can save us from liberal PC nonsense.

Liberals are more dangerous than Middle East leaders
