Historical roots of the depravity

Sorry for the infrequent posting - I'll blame the snow, amongst other things - but I will preface my getting back into the blogging with this link, explaining the long historical roots of the current Israeli depravity. The brutality didn't just appear by accident. When you think of all the very unlikely roots of the plight of the Palestinians and other peoples of the Middle East, including such oddities as the rise of the American Jewish aristocracy, the electoral importance of Christian Zionists and their bizarre connection to Israel (although that connection wasn't an accident!), and the corrupt peculiarities of American elections, including campaign financing and computer voting, you have to conclude that the Palestinians are remarkably unlucky people.
