Today's alternate universe dispatch

A pop quiz for those of you who haven't already seen today's Times editorial page. Can you name the world leader who wrote the following?

"The basis for the modern State of Israel is the persecution of the Jewish people, which is undeniable. The Jews have been held captive, massacred, disadvantaged in every possible fashion by the Egyptians, the Romans, the English, the Russians, the Babylonians, the Canaanites and, most recently, the Germans under Hitler. The Jewish people want and deserve their homeland."

Answer here.

I would certainly have failed that quiz. I wonder who actually wrote it for him?

One of the things that I will hold against Bush to my dying day is that the United States now engages with Libya as if it were a nearly-normal state, while simultaneously treating Cuba as if it were the most evil of the evil.

I *am* in an alternate time line. So far, so good...

I'm pretty sure drugs played a role in this.

Oh my gosh. Excluding the fact that Isratine (iz-ruh-tIne or iz-rah-teen?) sounds like a synthetic sweetener, this is a beautiful bit of editorial. Funny, when you think of it as coming from the guy who went and killed everyone who disagreed with him before chilling the fuck out.
