  • Fareed Zakaria to the American people: You are 'the big problem'

    So if you had a prime time cable news show and were looking for thoughtful insight into the current tax-cut debate being waged on Capitol Hill, who might you invite on your show? How about the guy with a show on your network with a focus on foreign policy? And so goes CNN’s “Parker Spitzer.” On the December 14 broadcast of Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker’s relatively young show, Fareed Zakaria appeared to elaborate on his December 13 Washington Post column in which he attacked government spending and tax cuts. ...more (w/video)...

    Lately in the news: Beijing provokes clashes with the navies of both Indonesia and Japan as part of a bid to claim the South China Sea. Tokyo is in a serious diplomatic row with Russia over the South Kuril islands, a leftover dispute from 1945. There are credible fears that Tehran and Damascus will use the anticipated indictment of Hezbollah figures by a United Nations tribunal to overthrow the elected Lebanese government. Managua is attempting to annex a sliver of Costa Rica, a nation much too virtuous to have an army of its own. And speaking of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega...
  • Time Editor Smacks Down Bill Maher’s Ridiculous Read on the Election

    David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | November 10, 2010 | Walter Hudson
    Bill Maher was befuddled by last week’s election as he discussed the results with his Real Time panel, which included Time magazine editor-at-large Fareed Zakaria. Maher could not understand why voters would cast their ballots for Republicans. The leftist ideologue stubbornly refused to accept the simplest explanation, that voters parted with President Obama and his Democratic party on ideology. In fact, the simplest explanation was so unpalatable to Maher, he conjured up a nonsensical alternative.[The blue dogs] lost on Tuesday. Those [Democrats] who said, “You know what? I’m not with Obama. I disavow him, even though he’s my president in...

    Newsweek ^ | September 4, 2010 | Fareed Zakaria
    by Fareed Zakaria September 04, 2010 Nine years after 9/11, can anyone doubt that Al Qaeda is simply not that deadly a threat? Since that gruesome day in 2001, once governments everywhere began serious countermeasures, Osama bin Laden’s terror network has been unable to launch a single major attack on high-value targets in the United States and Europe. While it has inspired a few much smaller attacks by local jihadis, it has been unable to execute a single one itself. Today, Al Qaeda’s best hope is to find a troubled young man who has been radicalized over the Internet, and...

    Publius Forum ^ | 08/31/10 | Warner Todd Huston
    Remembering that CNN's President Jon Klein has touted its down-the-middle coverage and claims it is situated in the "center" of American politics, on a recent episode of Fareed Zakaria GPS, host Zakaria tried to claim that Lebanon's terror group Hezbollah was some sort of model for religious tolerance. Someone should inform CNN that claiming Hezbollah is "religiously tolerant" is hardly a centrist position. If we can discern "religious tolerance" in a group that says that the state of Israel should be wiped from the earth, then there is a new definition of "tolerance" that no one is aware of. But...

    Camera.org ^ | August 27, 2010
    ..."Fareed Zakaria GPS" opened with a debate about the controversial mosque slated...in Manhattan. It ended with a monologue in which the host seemed to imply that Hezbollah’s "respect" for Jews could be a model for Americans concerned with the mosque plans. In that final segment, Zakaria said:I wanted you to see this. This is the Magen Abraham synagogue. It's not in Miami. It's not in Tel Aviv. It's in Beirut. That's right, Beirut, Lebanon. The synagogue is just now emerging from a painstaking restoration project...So why did this nation, often teetering on the brink of religious hostilities and hostilities with...

    Newsweek International editor Fareed Zakaria is leaving the magazine to join Time. The news was broken by Joe Pompeo of Business Insider, who added a little nugget about Zakaria's role at CNN: We hear that CNN plans to build a bigger franchise around Zakaria, who hosts the hour-long foreign affairs program "Fareed Zakaria GPS." CNN also did not immediately return a call and email for comment. At the moment CNN's lineup is full, but there will be big changes coming this Fall with the new 8 PM show hosted by Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker and a new host taking...
  • Wouldn't Wash. DC Funding The Building Of Mosques Be A Violation Of "Separation of Mosque & State"?

    If Newsweek's Fareed Zakaria is correct in what he wrote, and that Washington DC is indeed building mosques and Islamic institutes, wouldn't that be a violation of "Separation of Mosque and State"? Do liberals believe in "Separation of Church and State" but not "Separation of Mosque and State?" If Fareed Zakaria supports the building of mosques and Islamic institures at taxpayer expense, then surely he and other liberals would support churches and Christian institutes being built at taxpayer expense, right? Surely liberals aren't hypocrites. Surely... Perhaps liberals believe in Separation of Christianity and State, but not Separation of Islam and...

    American Thinker ^ | August 8, 2010 | Lee DeCovnick
    Truth, even in the tightly controlled prison of the Obama media complex, occasionally bursts forth like a swordfish cavorting on the waves of a golden August afternoon. Newsweek, the Washington Post's former progressive stepchild, published an op-ed by Fareed Zakaria, the in-house lapdog for the Administration, extolling the virtues of building the Ground Zero Mosque. A couple of sentences demand a great deal more explanation. To that end, early in its tenure the Bush administration began a serious effort to seek out and support moderate Islam. Since then, Washington has funded mosques, schools, institutes, and community centers that are...

    The Moderate Voice ^ | 19th November 2009 | JOE GANDELMAN,
    There’s the cliched phrase: “It’s like watching a train wreck.” In “Terror in Mumbai,” which airs tonight 8 pm ET/PT on HBO, you get to see what no documentary has shown before: a “360 degree view” of a multi-pronged terrorist act, seen partly and genuinely from the terrorists point view. The reason: “Terror in Mumbai” uses actual cell phone instructional conversations during the attack given to the terrorists in the field by a shadowy control “boss” in Pakistan. Not recreated -- the real thing…and it will make your blood both boil, and freeze. So, yes, even terrorists have “directors” who...

    March 15, 2009 Winston Churchill: “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.” They like to call themselves “realists,” but their proper name is “appeasers.” They follow in the hollow footsteps of Neville Chamberlain, who signed an agreement with Hitler, believing it signalled “peace in our time.” But it only encouraged the Fuhrer to believe that there was no will in the West to resist the onslaught of Nazi terror, and thus hastened the onset of the Second World War. As Churchill darkly told Chamberlain upon his return to London, “You were given the...

    Doctors at the Mumbai hospital who treated the victims of the past week's jihadist attacks were rendered nearly speechless by the carnage. As two doctors explained to the Indian news Web site rediff.com, violent gang wars and previous terror attacks didn't hold a candle to what happened. The bodies of the victims showed clear signs of preexecution torture. The worst tortured, they said, were the Jewish victims. As one doctor put it, "Of all the bodies, the Israeli victims bore the maximum torture marks. It was clear that they were killed on the [first day of the assault]. It was...

    NBC's "Today" show invited on "Newsweek International" editor Fareed Zakaria to promote his book "The Post-American World," on Monday's show and during his segment the author depicted the United States as a nation in decline as he declared the "era" of "'American exceptionalism' is over." As examples of America's declining standing in the world the "Newsweek" editor cited such facts as China now having the "Largest ferris wheel in the world," Minneapolis' "Mall of America" no longer being the largest in the world and Macau having surpassed Las Vegas in the size of their casinos.

    copy; 2001 by G.

I printed about a dozen copies and gave them to family and friends. Since then I have added historical data, but the concepts and the message remain unchanged. Many of the predictions I made have already come to pass; but any pride I might have in being right is far offset by the grim substance of those predictions. After completing The Creature...

    LONDON, England (AP) -- Despite losses around the world, al Qaeda has more than 18,000 potential terrorists, and its ranks are growing because of the conflict in Iraq, a leading think tank warned Tuesday. Al Qaeda still has a functioning leadership despite the death or capture of key figures, and estimates suggest al Qaeda operates in more than 60 nations around the world, the International Institute of Strategic Studies said in its Strategic Survey 2003-4. The terrorist group poses a growing threat to Western interests and attacks are likely to increase, the institute said. "Al Qaeda must be expected to...

    Al-Qaeda is not like other terror groups Europeans are familiar with, says SM; its reach to fanatical Muslims is unique The Europeans have got it wrong in thinking the terrorist threat can be contained by taking a localised, kid-gloved approach. What the world is grappling with now is a new, globalised menace, one that has to be fought jointly by developed countries and moderate Muslims, Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew said in an interview with Newsweek. 'The Europeans underestimate the problem of Al-Qaeda-style terrorism,' he said. 'They compare it to their own many experiences with terror — the IRA, the...

    <p>Democracy isn't always as important as the rule of law.</p> <p>As a rule, I'm a sucker for books with "freedom" in the title. I like them even more when the word is deployed in an effort to distinguish between, on the one hand, nations where liberty is enshrined in law and, on the other, nations where elections decide only which snouts get to feed from the public trough. So not even a favorable dust-jacket plug from Peter Jennings could put me off Fareed Zakaria's splendid "The Future of Freedom."</p>
