Resurrecting Saul Alinsky in North Africa: Rules for the Polisario
Recently, New York Post writer Richard Miniter finished a critical piece on Algeria’s Polisario by saying that the Polisario “would rather rule in hell than serve in heaven.”1 This is an apt description of the flinty leaders of a handful of malnourished camps in the desert who call themselves a nation, all the while resisting the blandishments of a comfortably prosperous Morocco (capital, Rabat) next door. It is also John Milton’s description of Satan in Paradise Lost.2
