Dear Andreas & List - & David too, 007 DZ don't impress you much. But, let's be charitable, he deserves full marks for trying! Andreas is right about drawing our attention to "The Middle East Forum - Promoting AMERICAN Interests", on the URL in DZ's posting. Let me add on a few more points, in my view, very telling indeed. If you Click on the above quoted Heading, it takes you on to more detailed info: "The Middle East Forum, a think tank, works to define and promote American interests in the Middle East. Founded in 1990 the Forum became an independent organization in 1994. - The Forum holds that the United States has vital interests in the region, in particular it believes in strong ties with Israel, Turkey, and other democracies as they emerge, works for human rights throughout the region, seeks a stable supply and a low price of oil; and promotes the peaceful settlement of regional and international disputes." So - thanks to David - that's alright, then. And there's more: Just a few samples of MEF's articles - 'A Window of Opportunity for Israel' & '(Christian Zionism:) Israel's Best Weapon' = "Put positively, other than the Israel Defense Forces, America's Christian Zionists may be the Jewish state's ultimate strategic asset." And, not least: '(Why the U.S. is) Discarding War's Rules' = In brief, until those Harris calls "Islamic fantasists" play by the rules, Washington must be prepared to act like them, without rules. This appeal for America to act less civilised will offend some; but it does offer a convincing explanation for the inner logic of America's tough new foreign policy." - Thanks for putting your cards on the table, Mr. Zohar!
