Subject: RE: BS: New Israeli atrocity: attack on Gaza aid
Naturally, Doug. Your government's imperial policies there directly or indirectly attack, exploit, and oppress everyone in that entire region except Israel. You are partners in crime there, so why wouldn't they be your only friend in the area under such conditions? It's rather like Al Capone saying that one of his top hit men is his "good friend".   Common interests is what that is, not friendship.

Mussolini was Hitler's "good friend" too, you know...and then there was Beria and Stalin...similar arrangements.
