C'est nous qui brisons les barreaux des prisons, pour nos frères, La haine à nos trousses, et la faim qui nous pousse, la misère. Il y a des pays où les gens aux creux des lits font des rêves, Ici, nous, vois-tu, nous on marche et nous on tue nous on crève.

Today's Recipe: Zuppa di democrazia, all'americana

1. Stage elections in the Middle-East with the support of your client state.

2. Interfere with the elections so that your preferred result is obtained.

3. Should the election result go against your intentions, with a huge majority electing a party that dislikes the goals of you, and those of your client state, provide the losing opposition party with tens of millions of dollars worth of arms and funding.

4. Stir for months, until boiling.

5. Serve with garnish of propaganda.

Friends of democracy, enjoy! As one happy customer put it:

“I hope they’ll all kill each other,” said Yvette Bagdasrov, 48, who works in a Jerusalem music store...“Every war among Arabs is a good war because they end up killing each other rather than just killing us. Fatah isn’t better than Hamas,” she said. “’Treifa’ or ‘neveila’” — they’re both the same, Meytal said, referring to two kinds of ritually unclean animals. (source).

Buon appetito?
