Here you go. Nasrallah's a terrorist. Ahmedinejad's an idiot. Gaddaffi's a murderous clown etc. etc. I do have some hopes for the Arab democracy movement but it's a bit too early to be sure. That could all descend into violent extremist chaos. The only Middle East news that really cheers me right now is that Dana Internationa has been chosen to represent Israel in Eurovision. Contrary to what you obviously think, I've spent time in israel, and enjoyed its secular, tolerant, liberal side. I don't like its occupation and ethnocentric side, Sorry if that offends you.
