And on the other hand...

It is highly symbolic that, unlike the moronic anti-Israeli parrot of the previous post, an Arab journalist has the integrity and the courage to be truthful.

In his weekly column, veteran journalist Abed al-Rahman Rashad, CEO of the Arab news agency Al-Arabiya, demanded: "Those that are now asking for the help of Arab governments - shouldn't they be asking themselves who asked the Arab nations for advice before they kidnapped the soldier, or carried out any other operations that would lead to a conflict which has no chance of success, and would incur enormous damages like the ones we see in Gaza?"

His is the lonely voice, true, but compare his risky and unpopular stance to the patronizing pontifical bull of Jonathan Steel and his ilk, and make up your minds.
