"Occupation, Not Culture, Is Holding Palestinians Back" →

iradeh:

By Palestinian businessman Munib Masri

EARLIER this week, while Israel’s cheerleaders and Las Vegas casino moguls were parsing every syllable uttered by Mitt Romney in Jerusalem as fastidiously as the Olympic judges were scrutinizing every back flip in London, millions of Palestinians issued a giant collective yawn.

The most excellent (and accurate) first line to a New York Times article ever. Worth a read.

FJP: It is a pretty great first sentence.
