The Dalai Lama Supports U.S. Policy in the Middle East

Unless Lhamo Dhondrub, the 14th Dalai Lama, is a hypocrite.
Spake he once: "Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free."

Absent America, none of those conditions would be met in most of the Middle East, Arab or Persian, now or especially in their bleak future. Therefore, although he absolutely distains our, ah, "robust" methods for taking up the struggle, he also cannot help but hope for an American cultural victory in Iraq and in the whole M.E. region generally.

Sould we expect to see his effigy being burned and stomped in future "spontaneous" demonstrations in the Middle East?

I don't know about the effigy, but if he showed up in person, definitely. Not a person of the Book, you know.

The Book would require him to convert or be killed.
