A good article, Mr Bermant. But please ask yourself why the once well thought-of US became so unpopular in the Middle East in the post World War Two decades and how the Soviets managed to get a toe-hold in the region. Do not fool yourself that support for Israel is anything other than an albatross around the West's collective neck. Is it still the main source of Western weakness in the Middle East? Probably not. Things have moved on and once tangental issues have acquired a life of their own. But 20, 30 or 40 years ago, it was otherwise, as Thatcher and every British PM since Churchill's retirement thoroughly understood.
