    Actually it is anything but a lie. Half those governments only stay in power because they use the Israeli boogeyman to whip their ignorant populations into a frenzy every so often. And let's face it, these folks are ignorant.

    Oh, those nefarious and sneaky Jews! Is there no end to their shenanigans? Tricking Arabs to attack them is surely one of their most dastardly deeds ever!

    You would be amazed at how little the Arabs think about Israel unless there is an attack on Lebanon or some new abuse of the Palestinians.

    Who is ignorant???

    Not everything stays the same, Jet, and the Middle East is changing almost by the day, and not in a terribly good way.
    49 years ago, Baghdad was in the middle of a CIA-assisted bloody coup (the Ramadan Revolution) which installed the Ba'ath Party (Saddam Hussein's alma mater, altho he did not rise to a position of power until another coup 5 years later (the 17 July Revolution (1968)), then to the presidency some 11 years after that.)

    Vacation spot for a mercenary or a CIA operative, perhaps. . . . .

    Well of course, they have the word Muslim in their name so they must be devils.

    The truth is that the MB is rather moderate by Middle East standards. The real risk is that they will have to partner with actual militant Muslim groups in order to form a government.

    YOu are correct, of course. Six million Jews decided to make war on 200 million arabs both in 1967 and then a few years later, with the certain knowledge that, unlike the arabs, if they lost they would cease to exist as a nation.

    Apparently those Jews, in addition to being nefarious, are also incredibly stupid! Fortunately for them, they are also excellent soldiers.

    Just out of curiousity, what does being 'moderate by Middle East standards' actually mean? That they'd rather bleed Israel to death with terrorist attacks and rocket launches than actually engage in all out war?
