It has been my observation that no sooner does St. Thomas Friedman (no relation, thank G-d) offer a prognostication about Israel, then the exact opposite occurs. If you could short his predictions on Wall Street, you’d be a rich(er) man.
Since his turn-your-back-on-Israel tantrum already bombed in Peoria, the man with the funny little mustache is grasping at a new straw. Now he’s talking about the allegedly irenic effects the rise of the Muslim Bros. in Egypt will have on relations with Israel. Give the guy credit, he’s got a wild imagination and he’s not afraid to be wrong or look stupid. But now that Friedman has spoken, I have an urgent message for any Israelis who are listening: Battle stations everyone!
