The Arab world is changing and Israel has a big problem:
Egypt’s best-known democracy movement has switched causes and is now focused on demanding an end to the country’s peace treaty with Israel.
The campaign by the Kifaya group is a sign of how the war in Lebanon knocked momentum from democracy efforts and left many reform activists deeply resentful of the United States.
Over the past two years, Washington has made promoting democracy a key part of its Middle East policy. But now reformists accuse Washington of supporting Israel in its offensive against Hezbollah guerrillas, which wreaked widespread destruction in Lebanon.
Despite these changes, the Western media continues to live with its own delusions.
