Exporting American Democracy

There’s a lot of talk out there about the death of the Sykes-Picot agreement in the Mideast. There may be a lot of truth in that, but in any case, it does not mean the US and the West in general has no responsibility to help fix the mess they’ve made of the region. I expound this week in Souciant.

His Own Private Fantasy

My latest piece for Babylon Times is up at Souciant. In it, I examine a YouTube video put out in July by Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon. The video generated a good deal of controversy, but it seemed to me it was so silly that no one took the time to address his specific points. Yet people who don’t know better might believe all or some of Ayalon’s line. So, I offer this direct response to Ayalon’s racist and nasty propaganda.
