One source of Bush Derangement Syndrome was that he threatened the elites by ostentatiously siding with the Jews, including the Reagan Democrat Neocons, by promulgating Democracy in the Middle East. Even in Europe there are probably majorities who believe in Western Civilization. The championing of personal freedom, wealth and creativity, a defense of Europe's heritage and support for the Jews would in most places be welcome among the masses. Why then choose to reject that for the narrow path of impoverishment and submission to the Islamists? Three reasons explain the attitude of the elites;
1. the aristocratic model that manifests itself in treason to the despised local peasantry,
2. the power of oil money that has flowed like blood from the West,
3. cowardice in the face of colonization by Moslems.
