Common Sense About Chaos

The Arab and other Muslim enemies of Israel (for the easily confused, this does not mean every Arab or every Muslim) want Israel destroyed. That is why there is a Middle East conflict. Everything else is commentary. ~ Dennis Prager

At, Dennis Prager analyzes the Mideast conflict in simply stated sentences that ring with truth and clarity. Prager gives the most straightforward and cogent explanation about the root of endless war in the Mideast I have yet read.

Also at Townhall, Mark Steyn presents his customarily insightful observations in an interview today with Bill Bennett.

A chat with Madeleine "Diplomacy is essential" Albright isn't going to do anything to staunch the bleeding, no matter how highly the lady thinks of herself. "I'm certainly willing to play whatever role I'm needed to play," she loftily informs ABC news.

Excuse me, but whoever said you're needed, dearie?

And I'd like to know what role she could play among killers who want a country "wiped out from the map" and who have no problem stating that goal for all the world to hear.

Be grateful that Albright is screaming from the sidelines this time around. Her kinder, gentler approach would get a lot of people killed. Of course, such a negative outcome to her noble efforts would most certainly be Bush's fault. But that's another post.
