Israel apologists

Michael Coren (“Ship of fools,” June 4, 2011) and Salim Mansur (“Undeserving case for a Palestinian state,” June 4, 2011) appear to be working in tandem to flog a pro-Israel line. This as the Arab masses empowered by the reach of social media and a collective determination to be rid of tyrants make the old despotic status quo across the Arab world increasingly untenable. By stubbornly clinging to her own self-serving status quo as an occupier of Arab lands, Israel’s isolation is bound to become absolute, making the rearguard advocacy by apologists like Coren and Mansur sound ever more shrill.
