Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe it reads differently where you are but that essay comes across as patronizing, self-pitying and a little bit paranoid.

It's not that there are big things wrong with it, just in each paragraph I disagree with interpretation to the extent that by the time I get to the final third of the essay, it has departed so far from any understanding I have of the situation that the world view expressed is unrecognizable

that probably was one of the aim of such articles. To create [mis]understanding of reality in minds of readers. But such spins within spins, slight miseinterpretation here, slight [de]emphases there make it more difficult to untangle such propaganda pieces.

I wondered at above mentioned new pro-Israeli poster - did he read only Krauthammer and likes? With such intellectual arsenal he had no chance here to advance his point of view though not many visitors to ET blindly buy pro-Palestinian position. Lesson: "Always do your homework!"
