Democratic Change in the Middle East

""The world must intervene immediately and stop Muammar Gadhafi," Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel said yesterday, referring to the Libyan leader," while Ehud Barak tells us that the "Mideast unrest" must not culminate in revolutionary regimes and 'Haaretz' informs us that "the US should direct Mideast storm of change towards Iran."

While we are all happy to see the movement towards change in the Arab world and while we would welcome similar change in Iran, does the hypocritical soundings from the oxymoron "Jewish Democracy" not make you want to vomit? If not what about Ehud Barak continuing to stick up for his old mate and informing us that "Mubarak still enjoys respect of many Egyptians, adding that his dignity should be preserved." Yes, they are going to feel a trifle isolated down in Zionistan when they are surrounded by a sea of unfriendly democratic "regimes" who start to demand equal rights for the native population of Palestine.

Sort of caught between the devil and the deep blue sea they are and who knows we might even find the Mossad "Stern Gang" and their mates from the CIA facilitating the Lenin and Robespierre option just to see their "worst fears" validated and keep them in that little state of permanent war without which their little farce would come tumbling down.

In the meantime the 'Guardian' reports that Gaddafi is getting ready for his "Little Big Horn', the middle class have started to organise things in Libya's second city, Benghazi, David Cameron has apologised for the slow evacuation of British citizens and, with the stakes high in oil rich and strategically important Libya, what are the chances of the West already pulling the strings behind the scenes and if, contrary to the scenario outlined in the first paragraph of this post, there are going to be democracies in the region ..... well, we might at least get them to follow the "Washington Rules" and if they need help in setting up their little shams, we can always send someone from Jerusalem to help them.
