Things to consider

Over at Powerline there is this post which perfectly demonstrates what the Obama idea of moral gives rise to:

Much has been made of President Obama’s “on the other hand” transition, in his speech yesterday, from the Holocaust to the travails of the Palestinians. Some thought that he implied a kind of equivalence. But the appalling Tom Brokaw reminded us that it could have been worse when he asked Obama about his visit to Buchenwald on the Today Show this morning:

BROKAW: What can the Israelis learn from your visit to Buchenwald? And what should they be thinking about their treatment of Palestinians?

Unbelievable. Obama, to his credit, squelched the analogy:

OBAMA: Well, look, there’s no equivalency here.

I will give credit Obama for this response, but he set the stage for this kind of question in his speech which suggests there is a moral equivalency between the Holocaust and the PLO Arab travails, and slavery.  Words do not exist in a vacuum and if you make comparisons in what you say, comparisons will inevitably be made.  Brokaw is a moron.

Now for the line up of must reads:

Victor Davis Hanson The Age of Middle East Atonement


Charles KrauthammerThe Settlements Myth A little history

Andrew McCarthya commitment to come to grips with “what Islam is, not what it isn’t.

Laurie B. Regan –  The Nature of the Scorpions in the Mideast

Enjoy the reading.
