Click on the link to MEMRItv.org here.
Then click on "2" in the horizontal column, with numbers 1-5, to see former Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari claiming that "America has no history," in contradistinction to his own versino of "Palestine" that has a history going back "thousands of years" as "an Arab and Muslim" land.
And then ask yourself what you remember about Ibrahim Al-Jaafari when he was Prime Minister. How did he speak about America then?
Do you remember, for example, his visit to Washington?
Do you remember when he said, in 2005, that Iraq needed a new "Marshall Plan" and that he hoped the Americans would come through.
Just look at what he is saying now, about America, and compare it with his oiliness of a few years ago, when he was trying to wheedle many hundreds of billions out of this country -- and who knows, he might well have succeeded. The American government has, after all, spent two trilion dollars trying to remove a monstrous regime, and turn Iraq into a decent, prosperous, society, rather than the society that is full of uncompromising, vicious, aggressive and mostly primitive people, some of whom -- like Ibrahim Al-Jaffari, can seem to be, for the purposes of inveigling Western audiences, other than what they really are.
Which was the real Ibrahim Al-Jaafari? Was it the one who was all smiles and guiles, trying to extract still more tens or hundreds of billions from the Americans, at the height of their credulity, and hopefulness, and idiocy, about Iraq?
Or is it Ibrahim Al-Jaafari today, telling his fellow iraqis that "America has no history"?
What do you think?
