LOL, I was having beers in Port Maria when a couple of Rastas came into the bar and struck up a conversation figuring I was a tourist mark they could sponge a greenback from. I told them I could not understand how anyone could whoreship Haile Selassie as the man was a butcher.
One of the Rastas looked at me through his clouded eyes and said, "you know man, Rasta, vegetarian".
The Economist is pursuing a different tact on this. The Palestinian Authority has applied for official observer status at the UN and some of the hardline coalition members within the Israeli government have threatened to cut off funding to the PA if the do not with draw the application. Hamas is also starting to rebuild in the PA controlled Westbank and is nearing the start of another infitada.
If Egypt can get Hamas to toe the line and the PA withdraws their UN observer application a truce is possible.
One of the first acts of the Arab Spring in Egypt was the opening of the Suez to Iran's navy. Watch for increased US naval activity towards Iranian ports in Arabian Sea. The Americans have already turned around their fleet in the western Mediterranean that was homeward bound.
