Life Onstage, Theatre of the Absurd

Is the world an insane asylum? If so, who are the inmates and who are the staff?

Americans and others like to call the American President "the most powerful man in the world."  Maybe it's true, but even so, does it make him (or a possible her in the future) the smartest, the wisest person in the world?

We, the world shouldn't forget that Barack Hussein Obama, now serving his second term as American President was joyful about the "Arab spring" as he called it and the violent change of government in Egypt. This was even though Egypt had been a pretty loyal ally of the United States for decades.  I don't think that history is Obama's strong point.  He seems convinced that there had been a country called "Palestine" in the Land of Israel before the State of Israel was established in 1948.

The present government in Egypt is among the worst in the world.
When Egyptians took to the streets to overthrow an oppressive government in 2011the world was on their side.
But in the two years that followed, as Arab Spring turned to Arab Winter, and Egyptians fell under the rule of the oppressive new government of Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the world has looked away.
This is what Egyptians told us when we visited Cairo at the end of March 2013.
Many disillusioned Egyptians say things are worse than ever. Thugs often run the streets, crime rates have skyrocketed, and police feel they're outgunned, faced with the flood of weapons filling Cairo's streets.
Making matters worse, everything from utilities to gasoline is both more expensive and more difficult to acquire than it was before the Muslim Brotherhood.

Considering how the Muslim Brotherhood took over, this shouldn't really surprise anyone.  Are Obama, his advisers, supporters etc surprised?  Have they admitted that they backed the wrong horse?

And closer to home for me, we have President Shimon Peres.  According to Israeli Law, the president is supposed to be a "figurehead" without any real power, certainly no rights to make policy, negotiate anything etc.  But we have this elderly extreme Leftist who thinks that the country exists to serve him.  Peres is beloved by the international Left and pro-Arab anarchists. Most Israelis totally disagree with his policies and his faith that with enough presents, the Arabs will be willing to live with us in peace.  News is that Peres is still promoting his vision of appeasement aka "Peace" and claims that most Israelis agree with him that we'd be perfectly happy to retreat to the 1949 ceasefire lines.  This is so far from the truth and against Israeli Law that it could be considered treason.

Unfortunately, the Israeli justice system is also controlled by the extreme Left, and justices decide according to their concept of right/wrong, good/bad, moral/immoral/amoral, which is actually against the law, but in This World, there's nobody who can convict them all.
