I’m stunned by Obama’s late comments about the Paris jihad attacks. They were awful dull strands of cliché: “…at times like these…” “…attacks such as these…” I almost thought he was going to say, “ISIL acted…stupidly.” You sense Obama’s irritation with ISIS, not so much for their having shredded innocent lives but because they have […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Paris Update or, “Who Should I Believe? You or My Lying Eyes?”

 

This post begins and ends with an apology for being guilty of what’s driving me nuts. The other day I wrote what turned out to be a very widely-circulated post in response to a headline I saw on the Drudge Report: “Every Jew I Know Has Left Paris,” which linked to a Daily Mail article attributing the quote to Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle. Now, who should have known better than to trust a sensational headline? Who should have thought, “Drudge and The Daily Mail may not have quoted Mr. Pollard properly? Perhaps I should check to be sure?”

These past few months I have been ruminating on the state of the world and how to construct for myself a way to make sense of it and play the right part. This week has forced the issue for me. The words of C.S. Lewis (in Fern Seed and Elephants) which I read many years […]

Can we please now DO something? I don’t think it matters, at this stage, exactly what we do, provided it doesn’t fit into the feelgood moral posturing category of the hashtag delusions we’ve seen so far. Our girls aren’t back #bringbackourgirls. Here’s a list – just do something #forgawdsake Read More View Post

My Verizon Fios has been on and off today so I’ll make this quick. France had two more terror attacks today. One involved hostages at a kosher market; four were killed. The hostages were held in order to use them as a bargaining tool for the original two Yemeni terrorists who had been cornered by […]

I am not Charlie.

If I was, I would be dead by now.
