Avi Shlaim in the Guardian
Oxford historian Avi Shlaim holds back no scorn in his op-ed in the Guardian regarding Condoleezza Rice's visit to the Middle East, specifically with regards to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Here's how he starts off:
Condoleezza Rice hailed the understanding between Israel and the Palestinian Authority on the need to destroy the homes of the 8,000 Jewish settlers in Gaza as a historic step on the road to peace. This is a fatuous statement by one of the most vacuous US secretaries of state of the postwar era.Tell us how you really feel, Avi! Definitely a spirited read. I love it.
