As I wander around the Internet and look into the minds of people who post their thoughts on it in all their glorious diversity, it is often striking to note how incompatible some lines of reasoning are to others. My post about Juan Cole's blog is one small example. He's a professor, I'm a PhD, but there's no fundamental common ground on which we can both agree.
Here's another small example. At the end of four days of extreme effort Israeli forces rolled up a Hamas squad of murderers in Nablus, and following their interrogations of the arrested members they uncovered the intended weapon, a belt of explosives, in Tel Aviv.
In response to which a strange German with a Hebrew-named blog called Shaul (fox) explains that the whole thing is a hoax. Part of his proof for this is the fact that the attempt was supposed to be against a Tel Aviv bus, but on Yom Kippur there are no buses in Tel Aviv.
