...But Dreyfus was Innocent

So we have come to this, have we? Israel is more important than the United States as far as certain Jewish Americans are concerned. Well, I don't think so, and fervently hope Rosen and Weissman have the book thrown at them. A nation of immigrants like America simply cannot afford to have American citizens betray Uncle Sam to the country of the origins of their forefathers or fathers.

War and the Neoconservative Mind

War and the Neoconservative Mind

Commenting in a new book on Abraham Lincoln, former president Jimmy Carter observed "(Lincoln) ignores the fact that the tragic combat might have been avoided altogether, and that the leaders of both sides, overwhelmingly Christian, were violating a basic premise of their belief as followers of the Prince of Peace." Neoconservative Ira Stoll, wrote of Carter’s criticism of Lincoln in the New York Daily News this week “How much patience should Lincoln have had with the immoral institution? How many more lashes should have fallen on the backs of American blacks during Carter's hypothetical waiting period for slavery to terminate ‘peacefully?” Whereas men like Carter, a Navy veteran, dare to consider the moral complexities, political intricacies and human cost of war, neoconservatives – most of whom have never seen a day of service – always whittle such questions down to a childlike framework of “good vs. evil.” Stoll never brings up the fact that 600,000 men died in the War Between the States, which is the main point of Carter’s criticism. Likewise, when Iraq war critics bring up soldier deaths and casualties, neoconservatives always ignore them, instead declaring it all worth it to defeat the “evil” Saddam Hussein.

Antichrist Still on My Mind

Antichrist Still on My Mind

Life is full of coincidences so fortuitous that it is hard to believe that they are simply random. Yesterday, as Taki’s Top Drawer published the final installment of my “Thoughts on the Antichrist,” one of the chief “conservative” American Catholics that I had in mind unbosomed himself of a silly criticism of Pope Benedict.
