Cheney and Kerry on Israel. Cheney: ""We will continue working closely with Prime Minister Sharon to confront terrorism in all its forms." Kerry: "I will never force Israel to make concessions that cost or compromise any of Israel's security. The security of Israel is paramount." I thought about Kerry's ignorance of Israel's long record of torturing Arabs last night. AlJazeera interviewed Mustafa Ad-Dirani (a Lebanese) who spent 10 years in Israeli jails, and was tortured and sodomozied (with a stick). He also--I noticed--spoke about Israeli emphasis on stripping Arab prisoners naked to "humiliate" them.
