You can never be cynical enough to keep up with Middle East developments. Next to our standup comedians, Jerry Seinfeld and his crew were rank amateurs. They had a soup Nazi. We have real ones here.

French FM Douste-Blazy was able to say with a straight face that Iran is a great force for stability in the Middle East. That one surely brought down the house, especially when President Ahmadinejad, our answer to the "soup Nazi," said (again) that Israel should be destroyed. Not to be outdone, his boss, President Chirac, said that Iran is a great country and recommended negotiations rather than sanctions to solve the crisis with that country. Perhaps it is so, but then why did France support UN Security Council Resolution 1696??


That resolution calls on Iran to stop enriching uranium by August 31, 2006 -- or else. "Or else" what? Or else nothing it turns out. France's change of heart, and recognition of the greatness of Iran, probably has something to do with this:



9/18/06

Iran, France to sign $2.7b gas deal Wednesday

TEHRAN, Sept. 17 (Mehr News Agency) Ė Despite the U.S. sanctions and business restriction on Iran, the coming Wednesday is to witness the inking of a finance agreement between National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and French Societe General Bank for development plans in oil- and gas-rich southern Iran.

The $2.7b figure is going to finance the development projects at phases 17 and 18 of the South Pars Oil and Gas Field and the capital return will be satisfied by the revenues coming from gas and condensate sales.

...

Comprenez vous? Liberty, Equality, Cupidity.

Even French foreign policy cannot match the local comedians however. Regarding the recent ruckus over the timely remarks of Emperor Manuel II Paleologus (600 years ago) about Mohamed, repeated by the Pope, Simply Jews had taken a pretty sharp swipe at anticipated Muslim reaction,


President Ahmadinejad was reported to blame the Zionists for the outrageous statement. "First they set up shop in the middle of Muslim land. Then they provoke us by these blasphemous cartoons, and now this. Is there a limit to Zionist chutzpa? Millions of shahids will march on Constantinople."


Simply Jews was way behind Middle East reality. Palestinians burned churches in the West Bank. Elsewhere, a nun was killed. An explanation for all this very un-Muslim behavior was offered:


Six Palestinian churches in the West Bank and Gaza Strip suffered damage and arson attempts in reaction to the words of Pope Benedict XVI. ... Reports on the attacks in the Palestinian media described the perpetrators as "unknown." In the Palestinian subtext, "unknown" implies "of suspicious identity," a phrase that borders on a half-concealed accusation that Israel's Shin Bet security services sent agents provocateurs.

In Tubas, where an attempt to set fire to a church failed thanks to the residents' alertness, people said openly that the thrower of the Molotov cocktail might be connected to the Israeli occupation.

The Christians and Muslims resolve their problems in the usual way: it is all the fault of the Jews.

PLEASE BE FAIR TO ISRAEL.

GERALD FRIED, Monday, September 25th


Today's world relaction toward the Jews and Israel has been the same for many centries. So many countries has often hated the Jews and percutised us. This is nothing new. I wish they look at the fact that we are truly the "Light unto the Nations" as discribed in the Bible.

Joel Scott Stauss, Friday, September 22nd
