    Israeli-Palestian peace is important, yes. Amen. But is it useful and humane to recite the psalm of the Arab-Israeli peace clichés as the only invariable factor in a metamorphing Arab Middle East? "Let's make as if we care for Lybians bleeding to dead in the streets of Tripoli, Bahrainis covering Pearl square with their blood, or Iranians being beaten, jailed, tortured and muzzled". How so? By repeating the mantra that Israeli-Palestinian negotiations is what's going on and needs to be cared for. The idiots will repeat Obama's fad even if Libya, Bahrain, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen and Morocco et al explode; even if Lebanon has become the latest Iranian province, even if Iran gets the bomb and threatens with full control of the Strait of Hormuz. It's unbelievably stupid and cynical.
