Lunacy at VFR

Steve Sailer recently quoted this Dave Barry line:

They can hold all the peace talks they want, but there will never be peace in the Middle East. Billions of years from now, when Earth is hurtling toward the Sun and there is nothing left alive on the planet except a few microorganisms, the microorganisms living in the Middle East will be bitter enemies.

Lawrence Auster had a conniption over it.

I think the funniest part about that posting was this response by "Ben:"

Finally, anybody who sums up the middle east crisis as ...

“They can hold all the peace talks they want, but there will never be peace in the Middle East. Billions of years from now, when Earth is hurtling toward the Sun and there is nothing left alive on the planet except a few microorganisms, the microorganisms living in the Middle East will be bitter enemies,”

is not worth reading.


My question for you, dear reader, is:

Is anyone who, reading an interesting analysis of what would really make things more stable for Israel in the Middle East (smart dictators who would have something to lose if provoked Israel), fixates at a small joke at the end about how eternal the conflict there is, and finds that the thing most worth commenting on, worth taking seriously (at least on the issue of Sailer's writings)?

That is all.
