Nerd Analysis: Fouad Ajami on the Bush Legacy in the Middle East

Fouad Ajami, professor of Middle East Studies at Johns Hopkins University, has an interesting piece about Bush and the Middle East.

Do take a look. Here's one piece of it:
It is to Mr. Bush's singular credit that he was the first American president to recognize that Palestine was not the central concern of the Arabs, or the principal source of the political maladies.
Yowzers! That's unconventional, isn't it?

Link via Tigerhawk, who notes that Ajami's opinion piece won't win him many friends on the academic Left. Clearly not. It's a firecracker, all right.
