[casi] Re: U-Turn of Anti-Sanctions Activist etc.

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!
