"I think most of what is going on is the result of extreme myopia" Cipora you could be right. But,there is a serious side to this coin.The chances of sweeping regime changes in the Middle East are high if not very high.This can happen before and after Peace with Israel.You must remember the Palestinians conflect with Israel is 99% decoy.A diversion by the corrupt Arab rulling classes to prolong their most corrupt regimes.That could be the thinking of the US establishment.To put an end for what is left of the political & social structures of imperialist Europe in the Middle East. O.K the US went to correct that with power and no diplomacy.Same mistakes as US has done everywhere including Viatnam.But extremism do exist.This is a movement that has taken over after the collaps of Soviet Communism.You can see it in S.America etc.What concerns us is the Middle East & the future of Israel. The eye of the gathering storm is IRAN.The dangerous core of extreme myopia.
