I don't mean to be condescending, but are any of you aware that the overwhelming majority of these authoritarian and discriminatory Arab regimes are not only American satellites, but indearingly referred to by the Zionist leadership as "moderate states." Obviously Israelis feel threatened by Palestinians, without exterminating them entirely, Zionism can never fully realize itself as the return of "landless people to people-less land." But few people see the ideological threat Palestinians pose to surrounding Arab regimes. Palestinian republicanism, parliamentary ethics, and pluralism--mainly envisioned by exiled academics such as Habash and Said, are a greater danger to the Jordanian and Saudi monarchies than Israel ever was. Perhaps, this is why Lebanese and Jordanian policy has been so keen on isolating and destroying refugee communities. Israeli idealism, if it indeed exists, has more in common with its arch-nemesis than its regional allies' do.
