Middle East Terrorist Scams and the Western Naivete that Empowers Them

By Barry Rubin

Rockets from the Gaza Strip continue to pound Israel. And much of the Western media blames: Israel. I want to explain again how this system works:

What follows is a seven-point pattern that goes something like this: Someone shoots at your spouse, you punch the attacker, he yells, "Ceasefire!" then kicks you in the groin and takes some more shots at your spouse. You try to defend yourself. The police stand by doing nothing and then declare you to be the aggressor for breaking the ceasefire.

And now a word from our sponsor:

Tired of reading the same old thing about the world? Depressed that the claims and predictions of other mass media and blogs don't come true? Then take just one Rubin Reports a day and you may be sadder but you will be far wiser. Five out of six good Middle East experts (true, a very tiny proportion of the whole group) recommend Rubin Reports. 

I ask you to give a contribution to the GLORIA Center, tax-deductible in the United States. When I say that every dollar, pound, Euro, and shekel counts I am not exaggerating in the least.  Tax-deductible donation by PayPal or credit card can be made at:
Click Donate button.
Checks: "American Friends of IDC.” “For GLORIA Center” on memo line. Mail: American Friends of IDC, 116 East 16th St., 11th Fl., NY, NY 10003.
If you need information on donations made in the United Kingdom--not a reference to Saudi Arabia--let me know.

And now back to "Rubin Reports!"
