Don’t mention the ‘I’ word

The Independent’s Robert Fisk recalls a telling story:

As one of the Arab world’s most prominent commentators put it to me this week, “[Joseph] Biden’s being set up to protect Israel while [Barack] Obama looks after the transportation system in Chicago.” It was a cruel remark with just enough bitter reality to make it bite.

Whatever it takes to protect Israel’s supposed sanctity in the American political arena.
