Jonah Goldberg on Israel on National Review Online: "If you took Western news outlets at face value, you’d think that every Arab hamlet, no matter how humble, must have at least one thriving American and Israeli flag merchant. For whenever the Big or Little Satan sneezes, it seems all anyone has to do is run down to Achmed’s Flag Emporium to set one on fire for the cameras.
The point here, alas, is that Westerners are suckers."
