Dear Matt Drudge, Godwin’s law called. It wants a couple weeks off for the summer.

This is how my favorite joke starts: A Lebanese and a Jew walk into a conflict zone…

Setting aside the stupidity of saying what she, Helen Thomas, said how she said it in front of a camera for a second, you misquoted her. And a single misquoted word is worth a thousand unsaid.

You got your Israel in my Palestine…

Whatever anyone wants to say about what was going on in Europe and the Middle East 75 years ago is one thing. There are millions of documents. There is film and testimony.

Whatever anyone wants to say about what was going on in that part of the world 2,000-5,000 years ago is whatever they want to say and not to get all tautological but they’ll say whatever they want.

Whatever anyone wants to say about what is going on in that part of the world today needs to be weighed objectively and without consideration of historical wrongs as no amount of historical wrongs makes a right.

Plenty of ghetto in the region today. Doesn’t take Nazis to run one.
