    THE DEAD BABY MEDIA If the text on that one is too small for you, it's a CNN piece headlined, "Why the Syrian regime is killing babies." There's not much to add to that. The Syrian regime may be killing babies, but CNN killed journalism. With some help from the New York Times, the Washington Post and the BBC. Anyone who has spent time in the Middle East knows quite well that parading around dead bodies is part of the Muslim ceremony of rallying for the next attack. These aren't funerals, these are corpse parades and the corpses are often...

    When the tale of Jewish illegal immigrants sailing for Palestine was turned into a bestselling book and film, it came to symbolise the birth of a nation. But was the story true? Sixty years on, Linda Grant separates fact from fiction On the terrace of an Italian restaurant in a small town in central Israel, two men have had a good lunch and, over coffee, start to reminisce about events 60 years earlier. "Remember how we nearly missed the ship because I couldn't find the ticket to get my cleaning out of the Chinese laundry?" one says. "And that trip...

    Leon Uris deserved better. The obits were a disgrace. They read more like a spiteful book review, rather than an appreciation for the man who gave us the romance of Israel. But letīs not be fooled -- for these obits were an attack upon the Jewish State, not Uris, who merely served as a prop, a decoy. The cheap shots came from intellectual stormtroopers who decide for us what is good, what is bad, what is high-minded, what is low brow... Like this, which appeared all over the news media: "Uris is not well regarded by critics, many of whom...

    NEW YORK - Author Leon Uris, an immigrant's determined son who made it big with the best-selling "Exodus" and other hugely popular novels, has died, his ex-wife said Tuesday. He was 78. Uris died Saturday of natural causes at his home on New York's Shelter Island, photographer Jill Uris said from her home in Aspen, Colo. Published in 1958, the 600-page "Exodus" was a sensation as millions read Uris' detailed, heroic chronicle of European Jewry from the turn of the century to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. The novel was translated into dozens of languages and...
