Israel, Iraq and the US
by EDWARD SAID

. . . Israeli journalist Alex Fishman, in Yediot Aharanot of 6 
September, describes the "revolutionary ideas" of Condoleeza Rice, 
Rumsfeld (who now also refers to "so-called occupied territories"), 
Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith and Richard Perle (who 
commissioned the notorious Rand study designating Saudi Arabia as the 
enemy and Egypt as the prize for America in the Arab world) as being 
terrifyingly hawkish because they advocate regime change in every 
Arab country. Fishman quotes Sharon as saying that this group, many 
of them members of JINSA and CCP, and connected to the AIPAC 
affiliate the Washington Institute of Near East Affairs, dominates 
Bush's thinking (if that's the right word for it); he says, "next to 
our American friends Effi Eitam [one of the Israeli cabinet's most 
remorseless hard-liners] is a total dove." . . .
