Gipper Anxiety—The Struggle Over What Would Reagan Do

Gipper Anxiety—The Struggle Over What Would Reagan Do

How did it come to pass that the “conservative” position on foreign policy involves proclaiming the virtue of revolutionary upheaval around the world, worrying that the survival at freedom at home depends on the active spread of American-style democracy abroad, and arguing that the standard for determining whether a country is friendly to the United States is not what it does to affect U.S. interests but the extent to which its domestic political institutions conform to Washington’s preferences? The answer, I have been told, has a lot to do with "Reaganism" and the flowering of the foreign policy vision of our 40th president.

Inconvenient Truth—The Censoring of Journalism in the Territories

Inconvenient Truth—The Censoring of Journalism in the Territories

As Aeschylus observed nearly 2,500 years ago, “In war, truth is the first casualty.” In the Palestinian territories, truth is being occupied by various factions and is in jeopardy of being eliminated altogether. Stroll down the streets of Gaza, and it all becomes evident. While in the United States, a kind of “censorship” is taking place as the more serious minded newspapers and magazines are being supplanted by tabloids and bubblegum for the brain, in Gaza, one is by the sheer absence of news—even that of the sensationalist variety. Scan our racks, and one finds that major papers like Al Quds, Al Hayat-Al Jadeeda, and Al Ayyam, which are all loyal to Fatah, are missing. This is certainly not the first time newspapers have been surpressed in the occupied territories, though this time Israel is not to blame.
