    Best Paragraph

    … I have seen in a while, from A Letter from a Fearfully Concerned Muslim, To an American-Jewish friend (h/t JHoward):

    “Just ponder how a third-rate community organizer — from the most incestuously corrupt political region in the U.S.; with a record of participation in the most vulgar gathering of Jeremiah Wright posing as a reverend, spouting Fanonian rhetoric and bigotry; with mentors such as the unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers; channelling the teachings of Saul Alinsky and Rashid Khalidi of the Chomsky school of self-loathing and sophistry — could advance through the ranks of American politics at an astounding speed, with little or no record of experience in government, to become the 44th president. In one of my columns from 2008 for the Sun Media in Canada, I had written in disbelief, as I watched the primaries unfold, of how American voters could be so beguiled by a charlatan of the Harold Hill type from The Music Man and vote for Obama. I was wrong in my overestimation of reason and experience among American voters as a check on the naivete of the university crowd and the duplicity of Lenin’s “useful idiots” in free societies. One of the lessons from 2008, for me, is this: how can I now scold Egyptians for wanting freedom and democracy behind the banners of the Muslim Brotherhood when their experience with electoral politics is negligible, and their history of 7,000 years offer little guidance for what freedom requires — respect for the other and not mistaking freedom for licentiousness?”

    Best paragraph in a while, indeed.

    And my vote for best column of the day from down under:

    "Palestine an obsession of radical West, not Arabs."

    Are the Arabs sincerely obsessed with the Palestinians the way western radicals seem to be? As another Aussie, Steve Irwin, might have said, "Crikey, that's a big crock !!"

    Go on, mate. Just sit back and throw another lefty meme on the barbie.

    Palestine an obsession of radical West, not Arabs:

    Wow. That is amazing.

    I'll have to read the rest of this piece now. Thanks for sharing, Professor!
