A fascinating article in Salon - you really should read it especially if you have Salon Premium;

The whole week I spent in Pakistan, I scribbled many more far-fetched assertions. A mullah claimed the Taliban were moderate toward women. Destitute farmers said Israel attacked the World Trade Center. Unemployed young men maintained that the U.S. kept Osama bin Laden in a safe house, because we wanted a pretext to bomb Muslims. At the party with the silk rug on the wall, a doctor whispered that a few more terrorist attacks would level America's economy. His eyes danced when he said it.

Also I came across this site, Norman Finklestein. Sounds a like a self hating Jew - but still worth reading. I don't know what to make of this guy.
