The Bilderberg/AIPAC NYT is in hysterics this week. Even as ethnic cleansing in Israel accelerates and as the remaining natives of the Holy Land are driven violently into smaller and smaller ghettoes, as the US arms insurrectionists all over the place except where the governments are vicious kleptocratic operations working hand in glove with EU/US energy corporations…we have this bizarre and hilarious editorial decrying religious repression and ethnic warfare in the Middle East!
