read all about it


a. "the jihad syndrome" as proposed in the media; fundamentalism as ignored/supported by the western media and academia.

At an "Israel Apartheid Week" event at City University of New York, after watching a propaganda film, 19-year old Binyamin Rister rose and politely asked the ISM presenters if they supported terrorism. When he received no reply he politely repeated the question. Rather than wait for an answer, CUNY security guards dragged Rister from the room and then repeatedly banged his head against the wall of an elevator and threw him head first down the stairs. Rister's injuries from the assault by campus security required him to be evacuated by ambulance in a neck brace to the hospital.

b. a druze MK serves as temporary president of the jewish state.

a. thought.
should be promoted more widely. logical thought. smart thought.
in the opinion of bill beattie, "the aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think -- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men." so where has education failed?
it seems that the liberal western world i live in has become too PC, too fearful, too liberal, too stupid.
i have more to say on this, but it is late, and the day has been long. tbu.

b. an interesting development. the last paragraph especially.

c. this post is not very well thought-out or well written, and i know my father will send me an email telling me to fix it and stop being such a liberal academic. and then i will.
