For sure, we of the West are enlightened. Freedom of speech and the open exchange of ideas are integral to our inalianable liberties. Yet, freedom of ideas has allowed the PLO imams and the Hamas to spread their wild fire of anti-Israel hatred among its citizens. It has enabled them to spread their script of Israel as the evil occupier and as an apartheid state to their own people and to innocents around the world, ignoring the reality that Palestinians enjoy freedoms in Israel that they are denied in Arab countries. Freedom of speech, ironically so stifled in most of the Middle East countries, has enabled fundamentalist Arab states to lay the ground work for their agenda which has always been, and which remains, the Arab takeover of the Jewish state. Arab anti-Israeli slander is now accepted parlance in the policy making halls of the EU and the White House. It is taken as given in the homes and minds of the gullible and the ready-to-believe around the globe. In short, the Israel-Arab conflict is alive, kicking and lethal.
