MYTH

US policy has always been hostile toward the Arabs.

 

FACT

Arabs rarely acknowledge the American role in helping the Arab states achieve independence. President Wilson’s stand for self  determination 230 MYTHS AND FACTS for all nations, and the US entry into World War I , helped cause the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire and stimulate the move toward independence in the Arab world.

 

Arab leaders assert that Middle East policy must be a zero-sum game whereby support for their enemy, Israel, necessarily puts them at a disadvantage. Thus, Arab states have tried to force the United States to choose between support for them or Israel. The United States has usually refused to fall into this trap. The fact that the United States has a close alliance with Israel while maintaining good relations with several Arab states is proof the two are not incompatible.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
