JONATHAN STEELE’S HORROR:The Guardian reports on the historic first democratic constitution adopted by an Arab country in a referendum. Jonathan Steele’s piece, which appears to be a news story and not an opinion column, drips with the bitterness of defeat. . . . Is this sort of reaction really just resentment at the fact that a right-wing Republican has promoted a war which is leading to the creation of a democratic republic in Iraq? Or is it not more the case that the likes of Steele actually find something deeply horrifying in the very idea of Arabs choosing democracy.”
