Steve - hi. There's at least one Zionist of my acquaintance; he posts a weekly column under the pseudonym "Spengler" in the Asia Times. He's wonderfully informed on the area and the players - even if you disagree with his conclusions, as I usually do! - and worth reading. He advocates nuking Iran though he - generally - views the neocons with suspicion
Here is an excerpt from his latest:
"Never in the course of human conflict have so many done so much so quickly to disillusion so few, referring of course to President George W Bush and his advisers. Iraqi, Lebanese, Palestinian and Syrian leaders kicked away the props behind Washington's stage-set for democracy in the Middle East
, all within the space of four days.
Hezbollah, after sweeping elections in the south of the country on June 5 in Lebanon's staggered polls, laughed at American demands that it disarm. Hamas holds the balance of power in Palestine after Mahmoud Abbas postponed parliamentary elections scheduled for July 17. Syria, meanwhile, went back to its usual business of intimidating local as well as Lebanese opponents. And on June 8, Iraq's Shi'ite and Kurdish leaders embraced the ethnic militias now engaged in a low-level civil war with the country's Sunni Arabs. "
