Ishi Crew: Observations on the Israeli and Saudi Leadership
28 December 2016 | Pago Pago, American Samoa
"I don't have a dog in this fight-- one or two state solution, or just abandon -- though I have read and liked a lot of stuff by israeli scientists (most of whom seem politically on the left; but some are right wing and believe in the Torah, etc, just as some Christian physicists think the Bible is true).
[However,] regardless of what they say, the way the Israeli leadership talks, when I hear them on the radio, is quite interesting and chilling. They can talk for two hours on the conflict without saying anything. Basically they are stalling, and, often, the press and others give them a pass -- act as if they are being reasonable.
Another chilling group is the Saudi leadership---the ones I heard talk seemed extremely smart but downright 'evil.' (One was talking about Syria.) A lot of these people are smart -- less in a 'science' way but more in the 'Hitler' or 'Trump' way (though some have science training).
