Just Another Jersey Guy by Matti Friedman: a must read

I have just put this quote and the link to the article on FB, but then decided it must be recorded here too.

I found the account to be a useful recap of the journey I and other admirers of America in the region have traveled—from optimism about a fresh approach on the part of a new kind of president, to concern that the Americans are misplaying their cards, to a suspicion that the Americans don’t know what the cards are, to the realization that they are playing Go Fish at the poker table.
Yes indeed. So read the article, it is short and to the point.

Indeed, Horovitz makes many good points. Worrying overmuch about what the dictator's club does is counterproductive.

Yes, there are various other methods to get indigestion, most of them more enjoyable, at least at the beginning.
