In reply to “Obama’s Democratic Authoritarianism” by Justin Raimondo, May 25, 2009:
It is really interesting to see how betrayed these progressive ”supporters” of Obama feel when he stays in lock step with previous administrations’ policies.
It reminds me one of my favorite quotes from a Cry of the Soul by Dan B. Allender and Tremper Longman: “All your idols mock you when they fail to redeem you.”

In reply to “Why Liberals Love Obama” by Justin Raimondo, May 22, 2009:
Such a tortured and Rube Goldbergian analysis over a question whose answer is simplicity itself.
As it was before with the Republicans/Conservatives/Religionists, for the Democrats/Liberals/Progressives/Environmentalists, the home team is now in power. And, of course, the home team can never do any wrong.
It isn’t anything deeper than this.

In reply to “What’s Netanyahu Really Afraid Of?” by Muhammad Sahimi, May 20, 2009:
Muhammid Sahimi’s article, “What’s Netanyahu Really Afraid Of” is so far away from truth and fact that it doesn’t merit placement in any objective media. To use as a talking point “what Israel did in Gaza in December and January” without even mentioning the reason for the incursion is in the politest of terms “horsehockey.” How long must an independent nation suffer repeated rocket attacks on their civilian population before taking necessary steps to stop it? As far as Iran ’s nuclear enrichment program, “Bibi” said it best. “When someone says he is going to kill you, believe him.”

Response from the author:
Every nation, including Israel, has the right to defend itself. No one
disputes that. I also do not dispute the fact that Hamas’ rockets aimed at
Israel’s population centers (which I strongly condemn) was a factor in
Israel’s decision to attack Gaza. However, I am not the first, nor the
last, to criticize the notion that Israel’s response to Hamas’ rockets was
way out of proportion. In addition, Hamas’ rockets were only one reason
out of many for the attacks. This has been discussed by so many that it
need not be repeated here. Finally, the article was not even about the
Gaza war, rather about what I consider to be the reasons for Israel’s
propaganda against Iran’s non-existent nuclear weapon program. And,
everything that I stated in that article was documented, including former
Prime Minister Tzipi Livni’s declaration that, even if Iran does develop
nuclear weapons (and there is no evidence, at least up to this point, that
it is doing so), it would not pose any significant threat to Israel.
Muhammad Sahimi
