Jeffrey Blankfort comments (25 July 2009):

Even I, who have criticized Abukhalil for his negativity towards Hezbollah, for his swallowing the Chomsky line on Israel's power over US policy, and for his being totally full of himself having, from the safe confines of the California academy taken the title of Angry Arab. Even I find myself in agreement with him on his take on Iran as described in his post. It is not an either or situation. The US has been trying to undermine and destablize Iranian society and the Ahamdinejad has recklessly provided the reasons for a political movement against him which on which the US will seek to capitalize. Thus whose who accuse the protesters of being spoiled Gucci-wearing American stooges manipulated by the CIA and worse, wily-nily, play into the hands of the US.
