I like a lot of Bradley's articles and I know what he's trying to say in this, but I think he's slightly off-target. There may have once been a Western culture where people fearlessly told the truth, but probably not. And today, Western countries are just as full of lies as the Middle East. Politicians and big companies lie before breakfast and keep lying until bedtime. In both West and ME you have to have a well-adjusted BS monitor. In the words of the X-Files, the Truth is Out There, you just have to know where to look. And pretty much all sane people know that in the ME there is right and wrong on both sides and that true peace will only come when both sides acknowledge that. Which is why we in the West should be shunning those on the Israeli side who deny this truth, like Lieberman, Bibi and Shas, just as much as we shun Hamas.
