    The international community's failure to distinguish good from evil -- and the victims it produces. We have reached the point where moral equivalence has become a moral atrocity. The smart set in the West has insisted for over a generation that Israel and the Palestinians are morally equal. There are extremists, on both sides, they say. Both sides are responsible for the absence of peace. The first serious outcry against this lie came immediately after the Palestinians began their terrorist war against Israel in September 2000. That war, incited, directed, funded, commanded and celebrated by Yassir Arafat and his henchmen,...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The developer of an Islamic cultural center that opened Wednesday evening near the site of the terrorist attacks that leveled the World Trade Center says the biggest error on the project was not involving the families of 9/11 victims from the start. People crowded into the center, where a small orchestra played traditional Middle Eastern instruments and a photo exhibit of New York children of different ethnicities lined the walls. The enthusiasm at the opening belied its troubled beginnings. snip He called opposition to the center - which prompted one of the most virulent national discussions...

    This incessant clamoring by voters and punditry for better "leaders" and more "leadership" is one of the most unsavory, dangerous, and un-American tendencies in political discourse. When Donald Trump was asked last week by Joe Scarborough what he made of an endorsement from Vladimir Putin -- a thug who's probably murdered journalists and political opponents and more -- the GOP presidential front-runner responded, "He's running his country, and at least he's a leader, unlike what we have in this country." Then he offered an incredibly dumb moral equivalency about how the United States also does "plenty of killing." There was...

Obama Tells Falsehoods About Israel, Retracts, Then Repeats Falsehoods The top propaganda tactics the administration is using to demonize the Jewish State. October 26, 2015 Morton A. Klein and Daniel Mandel    After weeks of murderous Palestinian stabbing attacks upon innocent Israelis, how has the Obama Administration responded?  Although Israel has been killing or apprehending knife-wielding terrorists, while Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority (PA) has been inciting and glorifying their acts of murder, the Administration presents both sides as morally equivalent, while insinuating or even asserting Israeli responsibility. Obama officials have been...
  • Daily Beast's Moral Equivalency: There're Extremist Christian, Jewish & Hindu Preachers, Too!

    It's not enough to read the transcript. You really need to view the video to appreciate the depths of Christopher Dickey's world-weary, dismissive, preening political correctness. Asked on today's Morning Joe to comment on Muslim preachers inciting violence from their pulpits, Dickey of The Daily Beast sniffed that the problem is "exaggerated," claimed that the number of violent Muslims is "infinitesimally small" [down even from the "minuscule" number he cited last week], and engaged in the most fraudulent form of moral equivalency, saying that there are also crazy Christian, Jewish and Hindu preachers who incite their congregations.

    The 20 young victims of Friday’s school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut are no different than those “who fall victim to armed actions” in the Gaza Strip, Iraq or Afghanistan, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman said at the weekend. An Iranian student paramilitary group, meanwhile, criticized U.S. gun laws, while President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used the tragedy to criticize what he called the “profiteering ambitions of a certain group … which have various destructive effects on the society and particularly innocent children and youths.” An article on the foreign ministry website said ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast “urged the American society to trigger a...

    The legendary U.S. Special Forces Unit that took out Osama bin Laden on Sunday has been receiving a lot of press coverage lately–and for good reason. The bravery of those soldiers, the significance of their mission, and the sheer drama with which it was carried out is right out of a Blockbuster thriller. In an article from The Nation, the U.S. Special Forces are depicted as a class of talented, courageous, elite, and highly dangerous men. Surprisingly, given that it’s The Nation, the writer plays up the “murder, incorporated” angle of the story about JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command):Col. W....

    Rush is an Inspiration. The morning of New Years Eve 2009 and reports from Honolulu are sketchy at best. They indicate that Rush Limbaugh has been hospitalized for chest pains. For more than twenty years Rush has provided lessons from his perch in front of the Golden EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) microphone articulating and sometimes embellishing a conservative perspective. Rush has never been shy about describing the incongruence as he found it which, articulate the difference between the political right and left. When he had a bone to pick with a liberal newsmaker, he went out of his way to...

    PARIS - France's government changed its tone on Wednesday on the arrest of Roman Polanski for having sex with a 13-year-old girl, describing the charges as serious after initially rushing to the film director's defense....After French politicians across the spectrum initially voiced strong unease over the arrest, a government spokesman modified the official line on Wednesday, saying that Polanski was "neither above nor below the law..." France's political and artistic elite defended him, with Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand accusing the United States of showing a frightening face by seeking his extradition. Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said he had written to...

Among his many unique qualities, the 44th president is the first to give the impression that the job is beneath him - that he is too big and too gifted to be confined to the humdrum interests of one nation-state.

    The Myth of Moral Equivalency By Burt Prelutsky There was a time not all that long ago when most of us agreed about what constituted good and evil. But that time, I’m afraid, has come and gone and is now as passé as five cent cigars and 45 cents-a-gallon gasoline. Our former sense of morality hasn’t been replaced by immorality, at least not entirely, but by something that’s probably more dangerous because it comes cleverly disguised as broad-mindedness. Those in the mass media and academia ridicule people who still believe there are nations, values, and cultures that are superior to...

    Mika Brzezinski might be taking a break from "Morning Joe," but the show hasn't missed a liberal beat with her replacement. Tamron Hall today seemed to suggest that Christians and Jews could be next to emulate Muslim terror tactics. At 6:35 A.M. EDT today, talk turned to the CNN series "God's Warriors," a classic exercise in moral equivalence. Hosted by Christiane Amanpour, the series focuses on extremists in Christianity, Judaism and Islam.Earlier today, Hall had watched the segment on Jewish extremists. Scarborough called CNN on its moral relativism. JOE SCARBOROUGH [Note: speaking very much tongue-in-cheek]: I'm sure we're going to...

    In the last few years, as the United States has endeavored, by varied means, to disarm several nations of their nuclear weapons, or weapons programs, (notably Korea and Iran) the question has been raised by some individuals questioning the basis on which we justify this effort while maintaining these weapons ourselves. On the face of it, the objection to the U.S. maintenance of these weapons while denying them to others seems reasonable, but it is premised on a flawed initial assumption.  That assumption is the idea that there exists moral equivalency between the governments (and societies) in question.  Victor Davis...

    The French presidential candidate Jean-Marie Le Pen provoked outrage among British veterans yesterday when he compared the September 11 attacks on the United States to RAF-led bombing raids during the Second World War. The National Front leader said both were "terrorist acts as they expressly targeted civilians to force military leaders to capitulate". Mr Le Pen, 79, also dismissed the al-Qa'eda atrocities in 2001 as a mere "incident". He told the Roman Catholic newspaper La Croix: "Three thousand dead — that is how many die in Iraq in a month and it's far less than the deaths in the Marseille...

    Fighting serious illnesses in their old age, Cold War icons Fidel Castro of Cuba and Augusto Pinochet of Chile are united in stubborn adherence to their opposing and now largely unfashionable ideologies. In Havana 80-year-old Castro, leader of Cuba for more than four decades, handed power to his brother on July 31 after an operation and has not reappeared in public. Despite official denials, many Cubans believe he is terminally ill. Pinochet, 91, military leader of Chile from 1973 to 1990 and now pursued by courts for human rights and financial crimes, was recovering after a heart attack nearly killed...

    APOLOGISTS for terrorism (and they are not in short supply) argue that it is a weapon used by people who despair of achieving their goals in any other way. It is a cry from the depths by those deprived of a voice in the political process. The terrorist is not an aggressor but a victim, and we must disarm him not by violence but by addressing the grievance that motivates his deeds. This argument has been used to excuse Palestinian suicide bombers, IRA kneecappers, Red Brigade kidnappers, and even the mass murderers of September 11. Its main effect is to...

    Former US president Bill Clinton warned of rising anti-Islamic prejudice, comparing it to historic anti-Semitism as he condemned the publishing of cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper. "So now what are we going to do? ... Replace the anti-Semitic prejudice with anti-Islamic prejudice?" he said at an economic conference in the Qatari capital of Doha. "In Europe, most of the struggles we've had in the past 50 years have been to fight prejudices against Jews, to fight against anti-Semitism," he said. Clinton described as "appalling" the 12 cartoons published in a Danish newspaper in September depicting Prophet Mohammed...
