'Why Won't Liberals Listen to Reason?'

Spengler, a/k/a David Goldman, absolutely nails it.  As the saying goes, read the whole thing, including the most perceptive analysis, (in just two sentences!) of the European - and by extension, the American - left's worldview and how it informs its attitude toward Israel:

Three-fifths of southern Europeans will be elderly pensioners by mid-century. Of course, they're going to go bankrupt. And Muslim society is fragile, and much of the Muslim world has entered a tailspin from which it won't recover. The left clings to the magical idea that if only Israel would roll over and die, and validate the illusions of the Muslims, that somehow this horrific future might be avoided.

And did I say, read the whole thing?
