Tom Friedman – Mistaken or Misleading?

In July, 2000, T.F. posed the question: “Who is Arafat? Is he Nelson Mandela or Willie Nelson?” However, Arafat’s track record is compatible with another metaphor: “Who is Arafat? Is he Jack the Ripper or the Boston Strangler?”

Has Tom Friedman been mistaken? Or, has he been, deliberately,  misleading?

  1. A vainglorious buffoonish charlatan, rather.

  2. He is a self-hating Jew and they are the worst enemies we have.

  3. Mark L. Shane says:

    tommy should grab his kafiyeh , his Tunisian passport, the nearest camel and get the hell out of town his ;services are un- necessary to anyone but arab propaganda mills.

  4. Thomas Friedman is not a self-hating Jew. He loves Israel and Jews. He looked for opportunities to make life better for Israel. Most of all he is an optomist.

    He is just often wrong.

  5. Rubbish. This is ridiculous. He does what he does partly, a big-big part!, because of the enormous amount of money he gets. And because he is a vainglorious charlatan as I said.

  6. It seems that this is the place Zionist terrorists use to release their hatred against Jews and Gentiles who aren't insane.

  7. It seems multiple surveys and research papers' asserion that Spain is a sick, primitive, neo-Nazi infested antisemitic fascist country couldn't be more spt. It's also nice to know that such antisemitic fascists are working at the EU burocrazy-a.

  8. Miguel de Espinoza is desperately trying to hide and deny to the bitter end that he is a convicted pedophile and child-molester, from his stint in Bruxelles where he got official help from Belgium's curent also pedo Elio di rupo. Nice knowing these antisemtiic "terrorists" as he puts it. But facts are facts!
