THE MIDDLE EASTERN THIRD WAY AND THE NEO-CONS



Iran’s Shirin Ebadi, the winner of the Nobel prize, shows again that there are many in the Middle East who do not fit into the simplistic"if you’re not with us, you’re against us” view of the world propagated by the neo-conservative Wilsonians in the Bush administration. She continues to stand up, often at considerable risk, for democracy in Iran but, at the same time, just as consistently condemns the U.S. war in Iraq.

The Bush administration, which continues to fall into the fallacy of dividing people in the Middle East into neat and tidy anti-U.S. terrorists/pro-U.S. freedom fighters categories, should take note.
