by Hugh Fitzgerald Recognizing that something’s wrong with Islam is an advance. Assuming it can be made right smacks of Pollyanna.

by Hugh Fitzgerald Soon after the Muslim terrorist attacks of 9/11, Tony Blair let it be known that he was a great admirer of Islam, and that he had taken to carrying around with him the Qur’an, a book that he claimed he read almost every day.

by Hugh Fitzgerald The real ”key words” of Resolution 242, as crafted mainly by Lord Caradon, are those about the need for “secure and defensible borders.” Carter doesn’t even mention this phrase, which Lord Caradon thought was the most important provision of the Resolution.
