One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

Okay, kids, time to play that old Sesame Steet game. Of "Marxists," "Islamists," "Chomskeyites," "radical tea party conservatives," "white supremacists" and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (no scare quotes needed though, Allah knows, he's one scary dude), which does not belong?

That's right, it's A-jad. For while all subscribe to a greater or lesser degree to "conspiracy theories" (and have therefore all been lumped together by Jonathan Kay in his latest NP column), only A-jad wants to obliterate the Jews via a nuke so his long-awaited messiah, the 12th imam, can return (a not-so-piddling detail Kay has left out).
