      So Now Its American Tyranny?


      According to this morning's NYTimes report, a senior American diplomat considers the mechanism his own President and State Department arranged for the advancement of peace between Israel and the Arabs of the Land of Israel as something tyrannical.

      You don't believe me?  Well, here's his quoted words:

      "We had to break this tyranny of the first stage of the road map before talking of final status".

      Well, that's refreshing. The Americans demanded a road map four years ago.  They set it up in stages when the first stage is supposed to assure a level of security for Israel that will indicate that indeed peace is an Arab goal.  And when Israel insists that security comes before peace progress, because without security who needs peace, some smart-*ss Foggy Bottom fellow (or maybe it is someone on President Bush's staff, although I doubt it; only State Dept. lackeys spill inside info to the NYTimes) considers this a stumbling block of a tyrannical nature.

      So, Israel's security needs to be sacrificed because those darn Arabs can't stop shooting at and killing Jews.

      Maybe Condi Rice and her State Dept. gang are the ones terrorizing Israel?
