#1 Most of the people in Israel don't much care for the Flintstones but the ones in Abu Dhabi Do.

#3 Contrived juxtaposition of coincidentally synchronous events, agreements, conditions.

It's written by David D. Kirkpatrick. heart still bleeds for Mohammed Morsi, whom he thinks America deposed and installed a dysfunctional democracy. He weeps in his book about Muslim Brotherhood offices and strongholds vandalized and left derelict and how US and Israeli forces actually work with Hamas and how Netanyahu claps his small, round fingers in glee whenever Israelis are attacked because it justifies Israel's nefarious agenda. As you may guess from where this bright spark writes this stuff, he lives in London. And quite better off than his counterparts with the same career graph.

How is it a bad thing if Israel as a leading weapon and surveillance systems supplier has enabled Bin Zayed, one sane Arab to keep and hold power despite contention from hardliners ?

The 'profile' goes on to allude to Mossad as some kind of intrusive entity that seeks to further its own goals by ... what ? Bringing stability to other regions ? And how is MBZ doing a wrong thing by reigning in islamist extremists and reducing Gulf support to them ?

The report includes :

MBZ wishes to see a Middle East where Islamist or any other form of mass-appeal politics is not only contained but also rolled
back


“This is based on a zero-tolerance approach that seems to equate political participation as the first step on a continuum that leads potentially to loss of control and eventual destabilization of the status quo.”


Most importantly it cites one former US DeepState Department official, who rues US support for the UAE as it aggressively pursues its foreign policy objectives.

Frankenstein,”
