  • For the record, the children of Abraham didn’t exactly acquire Canaan through Lockean homesteading. Joshua (assuming the fable is true) was a genocidal conqueror.
  • Revs. Robert Jeffress and John Hagee opened and closed the U.S. embassy dedication in Jerusalem. What’s that make Netanyahu?
  • The Jewish and Christian Zionist alliance: for each side, a pact with the devil.
  • When you humiliate or ignore your nonviolent victims, don’t act appalled or surprised when some of them turn violent.
  • When one group mistreats another group as the Israeli Jews have mistreated the Palestinians, the first group probably wants to cultivate extremism. The reason is no mystery.
  • If it quacks like a canard and waddles like a canard, chances are it’s a canard.
  • Blaming the victim: the last refuge of a scoundrel.
  • Meet the new swamp, same as the old swamp.
  • Murder in Gaza, American groveling in Jerusalem.
