The venerable Pat Robertson performs a deft interview with Caroline Glick in the video below.
As you can see, it’s obvious he has read her book and can speak knowledgeably about some of the players who have strolled through this evil farce during his own time on the public stage. At one point he talks about Yasser Arafat, whom he met on several occasions, as a “stone cold killer” who knew how to be “kissy” to your face.
Ah the things the world will do for oil.
Here’s the book:
During the course of this interview Pat Robertson runs footage of the various presidents who have played their relentlessly unvarying roles in “The Two State Game”; he then asks Caroline Glick why American administrations persist in performing this ritual. She says (this is a paraphrase) there is a “prolonged desire to wish away” the reality of Israel. Indeed. Even now you can catch glimpses of our current Secretary of State perfervidly salivating over the idea that it might be he, John Kerry himself who will finally catch the golden ring on this merry-go-‘round. Malvolio’s excitement comes to mind.
Like Pat Robertson, I had no idea that the United States military actually uses our tax dollars to train Palestinians! Train them to do what, precisely? To umm…make peace?…build hospitals?…maybe reconstruct those greenhouses the world bought for them and presented to the Palestinians as a gift in order that they might increase their productivity and provide a source of income. Cynics that they are, PoorPalis™ are always ready to assume the characteristic pose of professionally aggrieved victims the world over: snarl on face, hand outstretched waiting for someone else’s goods and money to magically appear. The fact that our government fosters this behavior means our peace talk is only that: talk. We don’t walk the walk and we don’t really want peace.
As for the PoorPalis™ delusional demands? With their unceasing internecine warfare and their leaders’ inclinations toward corruption and kleptocracy, they have proved repeatedly their congenital disinclination to do the heavy lifting required for self rule. The American government ought to be ashamed of itself for persisting in this squalid farce. At the very least it’s insulting.
