When Arabs raise alarm about Freedom House, they are not being foolishly conspiratorial. They know of the right-wing reactionary role of Freedom House in the Cold War and they know what it is up to now. Its Middle East program director signed this article: "Similarly, Washington should publicly help the Free Syrian Army, the Turkey-based military opposition organization, coordinate with military elements in Syria, particularly the regional military councils. The administration must play a more active role in coordinating arms deliveries from third countries to ensure they reach secular elements of the opposition who will not turn on us after they win. The United States should also provide its own arms, training and intelligence, helping to ensure that we become a sought-after partner, with commensurate influence." Would that person dare call for arming Lebanese and Palestinian resistance against Israeli aggression and occupation?
