Lisa Beyer of Time magazine (possibly the worst magazine on earth? I find the Egyptian Gazette more edifying) really is an idiot. She says Arabs don't care about Palestinians and saying they do is A Bad Thing. Even if that were true, the bigger problem with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not the threat to Palestinians that Israel represents, but the threat to its neighbors and the region it represents. In this article she does a hatchet job on Baker-Hamilton for the sake of extreme-right American supporters of Israel. Sickening.
