Orange you glad I didn't say Jaffa again?

On Saturday night, I reported on Israeli-grown Jaffa oranges being handed out by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a rented crowd at a Tehran rally. Now, it turns out that the oranges may not have been from Israel after all.
Outlets at which the fruits were sold were shut down as Iranian officials hurried to assure the public that no fruit had been imported from Israel through legal channels.

Shortly after the uproar began, it ended, with the realization that the fruits were not Israeli, but rather, were deceptively labeled as such. Officials discovered that the fruit had been imported from China, while Israeli officials confirmed that the fruit had not been sent from Israel.

The fruits were apparently falsely labeled in an attempt to appeal to fans of Israeli citrus in Japan and South Korea.
And in Iran? Hmmm.

They might as well be Zionist. No one knows for sure if they aren't really Israeli!

Zionist death oranges.

Eat them, and you will believe that the Zionists are ordinary people growing excellent oranges, and not a bunch of eeeeevil joooooooooooooooooooos bent on cornering the orange market.

World domination through control of citrus, as the panopticon islamic and arabic leadership would have them believe, or merely good farmers seeking markets for their crops.

One of these choices points to a pervasive and endemic hatred ... a paranoid schizophrenia that will take years or decades to cure. The other points to a real world view, that would be correct.

Any guesses which view they have?

This perfectly encapsulates why there can be no peace. You cannot negotiate in good faith with insane people. Nor can you sign treaties with those who are so completely paranoid as to not be able to honor the very words they agree to.

It it a profound shame that Obama and his adminstration do not grasp this. They are showing the world that they are lightweights, amateurs, on a stage that doesn't reward on-the-job learning.

Until the arabs and islamic types can look at a Jaffa orange and see ... an orange, and only an orange ... there is no possibility of peace ever materializing. No matter how many concessions are given (so stop giving them), or how many agreements are signed (so stop signing them).
