This resource gives us insight into Palestinian attitudes. Condoleeza Rice seems to be a particular target because she is a black woman. The monkey-in-the-womb cartoon is particularly offensive, and the rest are little better. The idea that a single black Christian woman could be the most powerful woman in the world really gets up their noses.

What they don’t understand, can’t understand, won’t understand, is that Rice’s success epitomizes America. It tells the world that in America, anyone can achieve success. Most Americans take pride in that. In the Palestinian’s insular, ignorant, tribal world, success is killing a Jew or two.

It isn’t much better in the US Islamic world. I watched Osama Siblani, publisher of the Arab American News defend the monkey cartoon on O’Reilly.

I’ve got a little suggestion for our racist Islamic friends: don’t insult our Secretary of State. She holds your fate in her hands.
