Bigger problems

by on December 13, 2010

If you were brave enough to read my long article on Israel you may remember that US-Israeli relations was described in terms of drug dealing.  I strongly doubt that Thomas Friedman had a recollection of that article – if he ever read it – since his comments on the same topic come several months later.

Oil is to Saudi Arabia what unconditional American aid and affection are to Israel — and what unconditional Arab and European aid and affection are to the Palestinians: a hallucinogenic drug that enables them each to think they can defy the laws of history, geography and demography. It is long past time that we stop being their crack dealers.

It’s time to stop offering incentives to countries that don’t act in their own interests.  That’s you, Israel.  And you too, Palestine.
