  1. What’s really sad is that if the newpapers in Dallas, Kansas City, and Minneapolis all picked up this story, 90% of their readership wouldn’t give a 2nd thought to either the extent to which Bush demonstrated his ignorance, or to the extent to which this demonstrated ignorance highlights why America ought to avoid meddling in the Middle East. Cultural backwardness posturing itself as cultural supremacy is strictly the state of affairs in America these days.

    Maybe I’m missing something, but while I see the Israeli Lobby as evil, duplicitious and very much culturally aware, their Christian Zionist helpers have been so thoroughly dumbed down that I can’t see them as anything more than simpleton dupes being led to slaughter.

  2. That Bush is so ignorant of Middle East culture is horrifying. Arabs and Jews dating and dancing just won’t solve the problem.

  3. The really cool response to this would have been, “Well, they do sometimes sing duets.”

    I am not at all sure that social contact among young people isn’t a force for social change (even though it kills me to seem to be approving of anything said by Shrub). I think Khaled and Noa would agree with me. I am always heartened by watching videos of young Arabs–male and female together–dancing to Khaled, and would be even more heartened to know that these audiences included Israeli kids. Peace through music! Dance!
