God bless Argentina. God bless Uruguay. God bless Brazil. Latin America shows the way for Northern America, the Middle East and the rest of the world, in diplomacy as well as in other things. Latin America is the most civilized part of the world today. It is the only part of the world that is not sinking into a swamp of neo-liberal economic fundamentalism or religious fundamentalism. For decades we have all known the solution to the Arab-Israel conflict: Israeli withdrawal to the 1949 Armistice lines and the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. But only Latin America has the courage to do something about it. Latin America, which accounts for the majority of the population of this continent, makes me proud to be American.
