Israel loves Mugabe

The Western Confucian: When Justin Raimondo Met Robert Mugabe
The editor of Antiwar.com begins his latest piece with the recounting of a 'singularly unpleasant experience' he had in Kuala Lumpur two years ago — Israel Loves Mugabe.

When I applied for my work visa to Malaysia, I had to submit a notarized photocopy of every page of my passport to ensure that I had never visited Israel, but despite 'Israel's unstinting support for Mugabe' the African despot gets the ear of Mahathir bin Mohamad!

The shady world of international politics is difficult to understand, but no doubt it falls under the heading of "quiet diplomacy", or "constructive engagement", as Ronnie Reagan used to call it.
