Speaking of paranoia

Lebanese President Fouad Siniora today criticized the Bush administration for the new defense package that will allegedly transfer $30 billion in arms to Israel over the course of the next ten years.
"Prime Minister Fouad Saniora has learned with great dismay, surprise and astonishment" about the U.S. defense package to the Jewish state, a statement released by his office said.

"Continuing to back Israel in such a manner will escalate crises and increase feelings among the Arabs and Muslims that their just causes are ignored while Israel's interests are protected," it said.

"This will raise the feeling of frustration among the Arabs and Muslims, and will therefore boost extremist movements which were born and are feeding on the feeling of (U.S.) bias in favor of Israel."


"We were hoping that the American efforts would rather help promote peace," Saniora said in the statement.

"If these funds were allocated to consolidate peace (in the Middle East) and bridge the gap between the peoples of the region, or spent on peaceful projects then the American message would have been different," he said.

"This is a very negative message to the Lebanese and Arabs.

"It will boost Israel's aggressiveness and arrogance ...it will allow the Israelis to continue to think that they can avoid the requirements of a just and comprehensive peace by maintaining military superiority," he said.
Someone needs to remind weepy Fouad who started last summer's war and how. I wonder which gap he has in mind: the one between the rich Saudis who attacked the US on 9/11 and the poor 'Palestinians' that Siniora keeps locked in 'refugee camps' and doesn't allow to become citizens and work? No, he undoubtedly means the gap between the rich Jews who produce technology and the poor 'Palestinians' who produce suicide bombers. As if money will make the 'Palestinians' stop blowing up.

Note that much of Siniora's spiel is justifying in advance terrorism to come.

Isn't this guy supposedly busy dealing with Hezbullah? How does he have the time for this kind of ad hominem attack?
