As a matter of fact, if one resists the media spin and takes a closer look at what the Palestinians have been struggling for during the last two weeks--let alone the last thirty-five years--it will be revealed that the Palestinian Intifada is a very American struggle. After all, it is a struggle for national independence, civil liberties, human rights, as well as a struggle to establish an open market in an independent economy, free to market forces and free from Israeli domination.
