JEWISH DHIMMITUDE: MIKE LUMISH In an earlier piece on my own blog, Israel Thrives, I discussed the sad phenomenon of contemporary Jewish “dhimmitude,” or what is sometimes called Jewish Stockholm Syndrome. This is what psychologist Kenneth Levin discusses in his groundbreaking work, The Oslo Syndrome: Delusions of a People Under Siege. Levin writes: Almost invariably there are parts […]


“That’s your “finally” point — a miasmic vision of peace-loving democrats in a Palestinian state and more “peace process” by which Israel is further stripped and weakened? Mitt, You’re a numbers-guy. Try this number: In a recent poll in Judea-Samaria and the Gaza Strip, 73 percent of Palestinians agreed with the canonical hadith (the words and deeds of Islam’s prophet Muhammad which have a weight often equal to the Koran), included in the Hamas Covenant, that quotes Mohammed on the necessity for “Muslims to fight the Jews and kill them.”…..(OH PULEEZ!!!! RSK)

Dear Mitt,

I know you’re a busy man. But this foreign policy needs some more time and thought on your part, and before your next debate with Obama.

It’s not that O’s a foreign policy genius; he’s not. It’s not that his foreign policy is good; it stinks. But what you have crafted (excerpted below) is more of the same. Just as you want to remap the economic course of the nation, you should also want to remap the foreign policy course of the nation. Why? The fact is — the fact your experts won’t tell you — through the Bush-Obama years our foreign policy course has been hijacked by a tiny band of extremists: Leftists, dupes and Islamic agents. Or, as we call them today, COINdinistas, neocons/McCainiacs and the Muslim Outreached.

I’ve read excerpts of your Monday speech at VMI at NRO. I’m going to skip your paean to George Marshall, about whom the nicest thing I can say is that he is the most overrated of American statesmen (but if you win the election, the subject should be revisited). For now, I want you to imagine Uncle Sam were a Bain client with a big problem: his foreign policy isn’t working and the cost in blood and treasure is taking him down.

With that in mind, let’s take another look at your VMI excerpts.

The attacks on America last month should not be seen as random acts.

DR. MOSHE DANN: JERUSALEM KIDNAPPED Refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel until Arabs agree, makes the issue a hostage to Arab demands. Such capitulation is unfair and encourages Arab intransigence. Refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel until Arabs agree, makes the issue a hostage to Arab demands.

WES PRUDEN: THE VEEPS DEBATE Joe Biden was a bit of a weenie in high school, but the star halfback got the girls, as halfbacks nearly always do. Paul Ryan was a high-school nerd but he got to drive the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. Both men have moved on since then, though few of us outlive high school, and Thursday […]

SRDJA TRIFKOVIC: TUNISIA…THE GAME IS NOT OVER A week-long visit to Tunisia, in the course of which I covered some 2,000 miles by rental car, bus, SUV, and a powered hang glider, has confirmed that of faraway places we often assume to know more than we do. The first country affected by a wave of popular discontent known as the Arab […]

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: A REVIEW OF ROGER KIMBALL’S BOOK ‘THE FORTUNES OF PERMANENCE” In some 21 essays, Roger Kimball [1] — author of seminal books like Tenured Radicals [2] and The Long March [3], editor of the The New Criterion [4], and publisher of Encounter Books [5] — lays out a general indictment of what we might loosely call “modernism” in the West. By that term, Kimball […]
