Zionists really like to reassuring themselves. They oscillate between sheer panic and pathetic and unrealistic self-reassurance. Some who can't read Arabic, like Thomas Friedman, insist that there are no foreign policy goals or chants for protests in the Arab world. Yesterday, I was watching coverage of the protests in Tahriri Square from yesterday, and there was a huge banner and it said: "Down with Ahmad Abu Al-Ghayt, friend of Israel and US." It is not news unless it is translated into Arabic--and unless it fits Zionist agenda.
