6 thoughts on “My Kind of Guy”

  1. Rather ballsy of al-Jazeera to give this guy a forum. Or, maybe, it is their way of saying, “see, there is nothing to talk about with these people”. Or, most likely, they found someone provocative just because it makes better TV.

  2. I don’t know. Maybe they didn’t know what they were getting into. Or maybe Al Jazeera, like other ad-driven broadcast media, thrives on controversy. I am glad that they broadcast the interview in any case. Israel would have less trouble from its neighbors if its leadership were as direct and culturally self-confident as this guy, rather than hesitant, ambiguous and accommodationist. US leaders would do well to follow a similar approach.

    I might add that Kedar is right on the issues — e.g., the international legal status of Judea and Samaria have been up in the air since 1917. His arguments only seem controversial because most western public figures won’t make them, so the bogus “Arab lands” meme spread by propagandists for the other side has become conventional.
