Well, it would appear that we have lost another chance to create a great country that values people's individual freedoms. Iraq's President, Jalal Talabani, is also the current president of the Socialist International. They just recently had their global meeting in Cairo. Interestingly enough, members from the Israeli cabinet were there as well. The big ruckus that came of this meeting? What event made it to the press? What event only made it to the Arab press?
Talabani shook the hand of Ehud Barak of Israel.
Now, you think the Arabs are upset that another Arab shook the hand of an Israeli? Nope. They are mad that the President of the Socialist International shook the hand of a Jewish member of the Socialist International while Iraq is still legally at war with Israel.
yeah, I am scratching my head too.
