    Tom Friedman is not a shill for Israel.

    His argument was much more nuanced than the usual "good for Israel" motif. He pointed out something that was indeed true -- that Israelis perceived Iraq as a major threat -- and speculated that they would ease up on the Palestinians and take more risks if Iraq was removed as a threat. This, as we all know now, did not happen.

    PS I've read enough of From Beirut to Jerusalem to know where he's coming from. In fact, I mostly agree with him on this issue.
