Mr. Levy is deeply confused, or deliberately disinformative, when he speaks of "neocons" and the "Christian right." Both are shibboleths: fund-raising myths invented by the Left-Liberal kook base of the Democratic party. "Neo con" is merely a hate word used to rile up the Democratic base. It is not grounded in reality. This White House is following a policy and ideological line that can be traced back to Ronald Reagan straight to Barry Goldwater. There's nothing "neo" about it. The truth is the US has NEVER been an "honest" broker. We have always been Israel's ally. This president should be applauded for ending the fiction of a America as "honest broker". Whatever "support" the US has had from Arab regimes has always been only as deep as the number zeros on US foreign aid checks. And the fact that SecState Rice returned to DC without stopping in any Arab capitals says far more about the Arab regimes fear of the mob than any flaw in US policy.
