American Values In The Middle East….

The New York Times, April 22, 2010

… “We pay the price for defending U.S. values in this area.”

                                                     Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon

Are these the kind of  U. S. values that the deputy foreign minister was defending?

1. Deadly Israeli Raid Draws Condemnation (Israeli commandos attack humanitarian  aid flotilla).

2. The Gaza blockade  has turned Gaza into a big concentration camp.

3. UN denounces Israel cluster bombs.
4. Palestinian homes demolished without warning.
5. Israel accused of war crimes over 12-hour assault on Gaza village.
6. Israel used white phosphorus in Gaza civilian areas.
etc..etc… You get the picture.
By the way, what is the ” Friedman outrage  index”  over those values from influential religious and other U. S. cultural outlets? Need I ask?
