And now for some Bazzar analysis of the Middle East: "The Iranians have been bazaaris for 2000 years; they can run rings around us"

From Ahmet in Tunisia:  "Asad...i am sure  this is a genuine reflection of the "Arab Streeeeeeeet".....: " Hoenlein, who maintains close contacts with some Arab leaders, often cites them anonymously as corroborating witnesses. When I ask him about Israel’s newfound alliances with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries, he speaks of “the diminution of America’s role that you hear about in all the different countries: What we did in Egypt and in Morocco and in other places hurt the evaluation of where America stands. I heard from their leaders myself: Israel is our only hope against the enemy. We will condemn them, but we pray for them.”
