I am not making any comparisons. Each leader is judged on his own merits. The Iranian leader was elected by his people. he didn't impose himself on the Iranians. Yes he hates Israel just as I hate Israel. Who doesn't hate Israel these days? but he is not a despot or dictator. Same thing with Abbas. He was elected in a more or less democratic elections. But the rest are despicable tyrants. I wonder why the US is backing these hateful tyrants with billions of dollars? Indeed, America's support for these dictators just make more and more people hate America, whose President never gets tired of claiming, mendaciously of course, that spreading democracy in the region is its paramount goal. As to Olmert, he clearly lacks moral and intellectual honesty. He is just an amoral political animal. This is what I hate about any human being...
