The Jewish Press » » The Peerless Cluelessness of Thomas Friedman: "The real Arab world is a place where antisemitism is mainstream and where rejectionism of Israel is absolute even in countries that have “peace treaties” with Israel. It is the Arabs who have announced boycotts of Jews since the 1920s, Arabs who stated the “three no’s” of Khartoum, Arabs who accuse even Hamas terrorists of being too pro-Israel.
Even in Friedman’s wonderful, tolerant Beirut, we see absolute rejection of anything that tastes remotely Zionist.
It is the Arabs who utterly reject normalization with Israel, and those hardheaded European Jews who want to be accepted in the Middle East. (The Jews from the Arab world tend to be more hawkish, because they understand the mentality of the Arabs a lot better than Friedman does.)"
