A professor of English and Comparative Literature at UCLA, Saree Makdisi , appears to have an axe to grind. He does not say it openly but he is probably unhappy (or at least he should be) with the true face of the Arab Palestinian movement and looks for a scapegoat to divert the issue and vent the never ending anger of the self-victimized. He found such a target in Avigdor Lieberman, but his recriminations  betray the deep seated queasiness which is spreading among the pro-Palestinian crowd. And so he tries to conceal from himself the internal feelings that threaten his long established beliefs which he has so inextricably tied to the foundering Palestinian cause.
