Doug Feith Says Barack Obama Doesn’t Get the Middle East

Let me repeat that.

DOUG FEITH says BARACK OBAMA doesn’t get the Middle East:

But if the president actually does understand the problems of Islam and
the West, he would not have said some of the things in his speech. He
would not have suggested that the Arab-Israeli conflict is
fundamentally about Israeli West Bank settlements or about Israel’s
denial of the Palestinians’ “legitimate aspirations” for a state of
their own in the West Bank and Gaza. The notion that Arab objections to
the Jewish state are focused narrowly on the territories the Arabs lost
to Israel in 1967 is ahistorical in a way that should be obvious: The
conflict predated the 1967 war, or there would not have been a 1967
war, let alone the Arab-Israeli War of 1948-49.

As for Iran, if Mr. Obama understood the regime’s hostility to the
United States, his Cairo speech would not have suggested the antagonism
derives from the Eisenhower administration’s role in the 1953 coup in
Iran. That country’s theocratic current rulers hardly mourn the
overthrown leftist modernizer Mohammed Mosaddegh.

The Iranian regime clerics believe the most basic ideas and
institutions of the democratic West – including popular sovereignty,
women’s rights and the separation of religion and state – insult God’s
law and God’s sovereignty. To assume that the differences between the
United States and Iranian regime are merely historical grievances or
policy disagreements is as big an error as to ignore the ideological
dimension of the U.S. conflicts with fascism, Nazism and communism.

So let me see if I’ve got this right. If Barack Obama would just admit that Iran is evil to the core and cannot be dealt with in any way other than turning it into a nuclear wasteland, and that Arabs hate peace and always will, then he’d prove to Doug Feith that he really knew what he was talking about.

Pardon me if I don’t see the urgency in getting right on top of that.

    Doug Feith?
    Why’s anybody listen to or read him? Isn’t he a proven liar and incompetent already?

    Let me see if I have this right –
    For the source of Palestinian and Arab disaffection you need to go back 60 years. For the Iranians, you don’t need to go back 55 years. No wonder Feith is known as The Stupidest Fucking Guy on the Planet.

  3. Forrest Gump is Einstein compared to that troll. The fact that anyone anywhere would give him a forum proves that America has more reason to fear an epidemic of stupid than swine flu.

  4. A –
    More wingnut welfare in action. I wnder how much theStupidest f’ing guy in the world took in “honorarium” for that screed?
    Whatever it was, it was too much!
    Between him and Bolton, they must be in desperate need for college tuition money for the kids. Lots of the welfare writing been going on lately. You’d almost think we returned to the WPA andhired out of work pinkos or something!

    And if that makes him the Homecoming King, I believe he’s found his Queen in Liz Cheney.
