Don't you think the Iraqis might resent this just a tiny bit?

In response to King Abdullah's statement, Rush Limbaugh:
"ABDULLAH [audio clip]: -- will be to provide whatever we can do for the Iraqi people, but the same time we do want to concentrate ourselves on the core issues which we believe are the Palestinians and the Palestinian peace process, because that is a must today --

LIMBAUGH: Oh, give me a break.

ABDULLAH [audio clip]: -- as well as the tremendous concern we have had over the last several days with what's happening in Lebanon. And we could possibly imagine going into 2007 and having three civil wars on our hands.

LIMBAUGH: All right, well, let's just have them. Let's just have the civil wars and let the crumbs crumble and the cookie crumble where -- because I'm fed up with this."

"Fine, just blow the place up. Just let these natural forces take place over there instead of trying to stop them, instead of trying to use -- I just -- sometimes natural force is going to happen. You're going to have to let it take place. You can spend all the time you like with diplomacy, and you can spend all the time you want massaging these things with diplomatic -- you're just -- you're just delaying the inevitable."

The Palestinian issue is the key element of all of the problems in the Middle East. Until that issue is solved there is an excuse for the extremists.

If the Palestinian issue were resolved, then the Islamic countries could actually crack down on the extremists, as most of the governments want to do.

I hope Jimmy Carter stays well for a good long time, because if there is a Democratic President in 2008, Jimmy should be sent to whip those people into line. He knows what needs to be done, and everyone in the region knows him. Carter can get them to agree because knows more about the problem than any of the current leaders in the area.

Jimmy Carter has made a better career of being an ex-president than anyone else in recent memory. And his diplomatic skills are remarkable.

It would be fantastic if he was still mentally agile enough to help our next Democrat president negotiate peace in Israel and Palestine....

I agree that it would be better if Carter could help with the peace process. I don't think Israel is even ready to follow its own rule of law yet.

In the mean time, let me shamelessly plug that the Yellow Elephant Brigade has found 'instructional videos' for fighting terror at home.
