In Hannah Jewell's Jan. 28 2011 column, "So You Want a Revolution," she claims that "what the United States wants to happen in the Middle East is ... not democracy." She claims the US has prevented democracy in the Middle East for 50 years in its support for Israel. I wonder how she would respond to the fact that of all the countries she mentioned that Israel is the only electoral democracy at the moment in the Middle East?
