WE are all in a mess. The mess is a product of Middle Eastern backwardness , and failure to meet the challenges of Modernity. The mess has now produced Islamic radical Fundamentalism in its various Sunni and Shiite forms. This is not the fault of President Bush or any alleged neo-cons(By the way I wonder if Eldar knows that the word 'Neo- Con' has become a syonym for 'Jewish' and that all kinds of Israel- bashers of extreme Left and Fascist Right pour out their wrath on the Jews in this way) The mess at the moment has an existensial danger component in it for Israel i.e. a nuclear Iran. If Eldar were serious he might focus on that , instead of worrying so much about the possibility that Netanyahu may come to power and improve our situation.
