    Now, how can they do that if President Peres denies them free elections out of consideration for their "king"? President Shimon Peres has always had far more regard for dictators than for the people they rule. Sometimes things are not politically correct, but they are true nonetheless. It is not politically correct today, in the USA or in Israel, to say that the US invasion of Iraq brought freedom and basic human rights to tens of millions of people. That despite all its faults and all its costs, it was both worthwhile and right. A callous President Obama cynically abandoned the true freedom fighters in Iran who risk their lives for the sake of free and fair elections in their own country. No doubt President Peres would abandon them too, because in his opinion the "real" threat is, of course, Iran! President Bush and Anatoly Sharansky were right. Dictatorship and the cynical abandonment of civil rights in the hands of murderous tyrants are the root of evil in the middle east. No, it's not politically correct. But it's the truth.
