This right-wing Lebanese-American columnist, Walid Phares, who was during his Lebanese days a member of the Command Council of the right-wing Christian-oriented Militia known as the Lebanese Forces (their most famous deed was the Sabra and Shatila massacre--when hundreds of Palestinian women and children were killed by militia men, in addition to other massacres and car bombs) criticizes my recent AlJazeera appearance. He, of course, distorts my words. But I did say that when Bush speaks of democracy in the Middle East, seek the safety of bomb shelters. Is it not amazing that this fellow had reinvented himself in the US as a "terrorism expert?"
