neocons market Aug 22 as Apocolypse
These people are as MAD as hatters.
Their theory, which is gleaned from Professor Bernard Lewis of Princeton University, who they describe as "the most influential post-war historian of Islam and the Middle East," predicts that Iran's Islamic end of times prophecies could be fulfilled on August 22, the day that they're supposed to respond to the West's nuclear proposal.
What do other people think of Bernard Lewis?
Edward Said gets to the nub of Lewis's Orientalist project when he writes that his "work purports to be liberal objective scholarship but is in reality very close to being propaganda against his subject material." Lewis's work is "aggressively ideological."Sounds about as impartial as Ehud Olmert might be on this issue.
He has dedicated his entire career, spanning more than five decades, to a "project to debunk, to whittle down, and to discredit the Arabs and Islam."
