Angry Arab on the "American-Israeli plot"

Angry Arab, you may recall, renounced supportive things he said about three hikers held by Iran (one an ex-student) when he learned one had Israeli connections. The ex-student has now written a letter of protest to AA and he replies here. The whole business is very amusing and illuminating for AA-watchers, but I am just quoting a brief excerpt which concerns the great conspiracy we all love:
. . . yes, the lousy Iranian regime and lousy Arab regimes often persecute people under the pretext of fighting an American-Israeli plot. But that does not mean that there is no American-Israeli plot in the region. It seems to me that, in this day and age, to deny the existence of this plot is to display extreme naivite or worse.
