None are so deaf as those who refuse to hear.  When an authoritative  
figure, in position to give full weight to his words, says an  
insurgency next door "should be supported," that is as close as such a  
person will ever come to admitting that it IS being supported (Israel  
in fact is the ONLY foreign country to attack the armed forces of the  
Syrian regime, claiming as cover "self-defense" over the Golan).

Among others in the crowd who agree that the FSA "should be supported"  
are not only Obama and the Israeli government--they include Cameron,  
Hollande, Erzogan, and (as cover for their active support to various  
jihadi factions) all the crowned heads and dictators around the Gulf.   
And who else?
