 Posted 1/1/2009 3:59:06 PM in response to “Hard Truths About the Conflict” by Robert J. Lieber, a professor of government and international affairs at Georgetown University, is most recently the author of “The American Era: Power and Strategy for the 21st Century.”

Such precision! The splattered brains and entrails of only 1 in 5 or 6 are those of women and children. The shattered bodies lying in pitifully-supplied Gaza hospitals surely represent an even higher degree of such good-hearted “precision.”

It’s hard to imagine that this apologist for apartheid is an educator, but then this is part and parcel of a well-orchestrated Israeli PR apparatus that swings into action whenever it “reacts” to the latest violence that it carefully incubates and nurtures in its perpetual hothouses, nay, hell houses of Palestinian deprivation and degradation.

Lieber (I wonder where his nationalist impulses lie?) suggests that there is an absence of support for (democratically elected) Hamas “by Muslim governments” who just happen to be corrupt stooges of this waning American empire.  Such academic brilliance!  Perhaps this Leiber man (an intentional pun) should wander the back streets and alleys of these “Muslim” countries and conduct a more scientific sampling of opinions about Hamas and the rape of Gaza (so similar to the rape of Lebanon in 2006).  Perhaps this esteemed educator can explain why Israel is still expanding its illegal settlements if it has truly “accepted the principle of a two-state solution as the basis for ending the conflict.”

Of course, real research and awkward questions will only shed light on what’s really going on “over there.”  And we all know what happens when we know the truth.

Apparently freedom is not an option.
