    From the Beirut Daily Star:
    Rami Khouri on the basic problem of current Arab governance.
    .
    I have found Khouri to be a very rational and knowledgeable commenter on the Middle East.

    Needs to be a three-way, Jews, Christians, and Muslims, as a basic, with thousands of “foot soldiers” representing the various sects that basically hate each other, even if not CURRENTLY coming to blows, and wars.

    I just read the article by Rami Khouri, as martens…. posted link above. All should read it, as written by one closer and more knowledgable about mid-east problems than any of us on GC.

    My Kaspersky anti-virus alarm did not go off when I clicked it on: It’s safe!

    Thanks, martens…!

    I was tempted to a little black-humor by Monty Python too, but things are pretty dicey right now.

    So, are we supposed to go in there with the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch?

    If hate is the key factor, then you’d better include Democrats and Republicans.

    Looks like Bennett finally had a good idea.

    . I hope Obama is smart enough to get us out of the entire Middle East . We didn’t “break it in the first place”, as many of those who advocate American participation claim. Middle Eastern society has been broken for longer than the United States has existed. In the history of that region, peace has been a rare situation, always imposed by a government strong enough to prevent people who would otherwise be shooting (or throwing spears at) each other from doing so. It can’t be any different when the majority of people would shoot each other over religious differences that would be considered trivial by anyone who had any education that involved more than one book. And, those who are uneducated are convenient tools to gain power for those few who are not, which provides encouragement to keep them uneducated.But the saying " the enemy of my enemy is my friend" does not apply in this case. Each side is our enemy. We are “infidels”, making us more “killable” to each side than the other side and going over there to interfere is of no value to anyone in America. We need to simply stand back, allow them to manage their affairs however they would if we didn’t exist, and maybe in a few hundred years they will work it out. Once they realize that we have lost interest in them, perhaps they will return the favor and ignore us too. Killing each other is a more immediate goal.In those cases where we can infuse some actual education into the mix, that probably would be helpful— which is why they hate teachers more than soldiers. But military interference from America accomplishes nothing except creating hatred for our country, and leaving tanks, guns and bullets where they can be used to prolong the fighting. Granted, mutual hatred for America could bring the two sides together sooner than might otherwise be the case, to attack us, but that doesn’t seem to me to be a desirable outcome. Ultimately, each country belongs to the citizens of that country, and until they fix it themselves, it ain’t fixed.
