AbuKhalil is an important read for the elections in Lebanon and Iran in context, but I think I'm going to start calling him 'AAA': Angry Arab Aristocrat, since you really get the sense that democracy is frustrating to him. He defends it when it suits him. He reminds me of Leiter, with Leiter preferring an aristocracy of technocrats (while not really having much interest in democracy at all.) Also Arabist. I left a comment on a post at The Forward saying the obvious: that Zionism was and is racial separatism and therefore could never be considered a liberal belief. It was removed.
