    Beirut rules

    When people heard that I was planning to travel to Beirut, their reaction was the same – they said “You’re going – where??”

      i saw brief exchange bteewen khalidi and Rabinovich on bloomberg the other day promoting this event. it will be aired on bloomberg television on the 15th sometime in the evening. its really simple: Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, (I conjure you to believe me fellow citizens,) since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another, cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real Patriots, who may resist the intriegues of the favourite, are liable to become suspected and odious; while its tools and dupes usurp the applause & confidence of the people, to surrender their interests. George Washington, farewell speech, 1796, on foreign influence on policywhile i havent seen the program yet: –Israel “was forming a 21st century culture.” every one should be insulted by this. clearly they havent heard of the BRIC nations.–Ehud Barak offered Arafat 95 percent of the West Bank and Arafat “walked away;” “There is no reliable Palestinian partner.”another misrepsentation of the facts. if one would actually go over the map (physical geography) and see what the israelis offered, anyone in their right mind would have rejected it. –Countries in the “Moslem” world were not sufficiently “dependent American allies” like Israel has beenits just amazing how people who have a title’ know absolutely nothing about what they’re talking about. the u.s. war on terror is not headquarted in israel. its hq is in doha, with bases spread around the gcc. bahrain is the home to the 5th Fleet (i think its the 5th) and dubai has the only port in the region that can accomodate the aircraft carriers. taking further step, afghanistan’s invasion and iraq’s invasion were all (and still) headquarted in doha. and this isnt even taking into consideration turkey’s role in nato during the 1st iraq war, nor indonesia’s or india’s relationship with the united states (homes to the largest muslim populations). what he should have said, is arab, not muslim. –Saudi Arabia is not a reliable ally because it exports “Wahabinism.” Only Israel can be depended on in the Middle East.another remarkable generic talking point. what does wahabinism have to do with anything?–The Palestinian response to “dismantling settlements [in Gaza], dismantling 3000 people” was rocket fire. Again, there is no “Palestinian partner.”its amazing how some one who has wronged is expected to pay lip service to the one that wronged him. the israelis did no favors to the palestinians by leaving gaza, it was economically unfeasable to maintain a presence in gaza. there was even a report made on this prior to the withdrawal.it sounds like every argument Eizenstat and Rabinovich have made are the same generic, fear creating jibberish that has been told over and over again to the public. how anyone can still believe this dictat is beyond me. was there anything said that hasnt been said before?
