Jerusalem neocon who claims influence in D.C. says Israel faces Nazi societies in Jordan and Egypt

Philip Weiss - Mondoweiss

The only problem with people who make aliyah is that they don't just stay there. They come back here to fill our airwaves. Here is Caroline Glick, a columnist at the Jerusalem Post who says she is also "the senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC. and... [I] travel several times a year to Washington where I routinely brief senior administration officials and members of Congress on issues of joint Israeli-American concern." Seems like she's putting on airs. Her advice:
[John] Bolton, [Daniel] Pipes and [Efraim] Inbar not only agree that the two-state paradigm has failed, they also agree on what must be done now to "solve" the Palestinian conflict.

In their view the failed "two-state solution" should be replaced with what Bolton refers to as the "three-state solution." All three analysts begin their analyses with the assertion that Israel is uninterested in controlling Gaza , Judea and Samaria. Since the Palestinians have shown they cannot be trusted with sovereignty, the three argue that the best thing to do is to return the situation to what it was from 1949 to 1967: Egypt should reassert its control over Gaza and Jordan should reassert its control over Judea and Samaria....

THE SAME UNFORTUNATELY is the situation in both Egypt and Jordan. Hamas's Nazi-like Jew hatred is shared by the vast majority of Jordanians and Egyptians. Islamist calls for the extermination of the Jewish people and the destruction of Israel dominate the mosques, seminaries, universities and media outlets in both countries. Popular opposition to the peace treaties that Egypt and Jordan signed with Israel stands consistently at more than 90 percent in both countries.

This is crazy-- calls for the extermination of the Jewish people "dominate the... universities and media outlets" of Jordan and Egypt? And it's racist. Pakistanis get a state, Indians get a state, Israel gets a state, Kosovars get a state. But Palestinians were promised one 62 years ago and "cannot be trusted with sovereignty"?

A few tidbits about Caroline Glick: she comes across as a paranoid psychopath.

The woman is downright dangerous, and it scares me more that she comes to Washington DC to talk to lawmakers. No wonder we can't get anything done.

I think she exaggerates her own importance though: even Washington hawks aren't likely to listen to the zionist equivalent to Dr Strangelove, IMHO...

And yet, being a journalist on this end, I see people quoting her as if she were an evangelist.

Well, yes, the Ultimate Hyper Far Right: these people exist. They're Glick's turf I'm guessing...
