Ten Years of Lessons Unlearned Posted By Bruce Thornton URL to article: http://frontpagemag.com/2011/09/19/ten-years-of-lessons-unlearned/ Ten years after 9/11 many politicians and pundits continue to misinterpret Islamic jihadism. Typical is the following comment from Senator Joseph Lieberman’s essay in Foreign Affairs, in which he speaks of “an ideological struggle within Islam, waged between an extremist minority [...]

http://frontpagemag.com/2011/09/19/palestinians-bring-their-intifada-to-the-united-nations/ Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas threw down the gauntlet in his September 16 address to the Palestinian people, televised from his Ramallah headquarters. He said he will take the Palestinians’ request for full United Nations member state recognition to the U.N. Security Council on the basis of the 1967 territorial lines, even though he [...]

That apparently won’t stop the Palestinians from seeking recognition as a state [...]
God, can you believe it? And Rick Perry! And praise for Israel! The trifecta of New York Times nightmares — can it get any worse for journalists? But it did. The leading Republican candidate for president appeared at the center of an arena jammed with well-behaved, cheering college students and staff, all of whom dared to openly be…Christian! This stands in marked contrast to, say, a parallel University of Wisconsin-Madison event where “scores” of that state’s best and brightest “mobbed” a speaker while “shouting insults” and “knocking” staff “to the ground. Police had to be summoned.” Or a Columbia University event where Ivy Leaguers “heckled” and “jeered” a “wounded Iraq war vet.” Progressivism in action, doing what college students should be doing in Mainstream Mediaworld: beating down the enablers of a corrupt American society.
Rick Perry came to Liberty University (also known as Christian Wingnut Central) in Virginia just this past week and, despite the fears of the Washington Post and others of the mainstream media resentfully tagging along, the republic still stands. Perry talked God to 10,000 weirdly normal university students — no sex, drugs, or spittle in evidence — and the only sign of apocalypse came from the press covering the event, their heads revolving Linda Blair-like as they listened to Perry and Liberty speakers serially thanking and praising God.
http://www.americanthinker.com/printpage/?url=http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/../2011/09/groucho_marx_saves_america.html America is roaring back — with laughter. A fed-up nation with itchy Twitter fingers is bringing down what’s left of an insufferably pompous presidency. How? By unleashing the most American weapon of all: the wisecrack. A hilarious barrage of catcalls and insults has greeted Obama’s latest debacle, a Soviet-style website called Attack Watch. With [...]

Before certain readers erupt at the mere suggestion that Palestinians may not be so entitled, we’d note that the Kurds—one of the oldest ethnic groups in the world—don’t have a state. Neither do the Tamils of Sri Lanka, the Uighurs and Tibetans of China, the Basques of Spain, [...]
