Kosti’s Karl Kraus
clear

by Richard Kostelanetz (November 2014)


In memory of the great American social critic Thomas Szasz (1920-2012), whose Kraus translations became my milestone.

Having used automatic translations for the first drafts of my translations of Guillaume Apollinaire, F. T. Marinetti, and Gustave Flaubert, writing initially in French and Italian, I decided to do likewise for a favorite German writer, the Viennese Karl Kraus (1874-1936), again rewriting his sentences as though they were my own, thus producing in English a Karl Kraus so different from other available translations that I call my texts Kosti’s Karl Kraus. Typically perhaps, I’ve added a few of my own sentences written in a Krausian spirit.  more>>>

Andy Rooney Meets Ernest Hemingway: A Cautionary Tale
clear

by Sam Bluefarb (November 2014)


He was not a bad man; he was a silly man.—Anon.

On Andy Rooney’s death, I went back to a letter I wrote to him, prompted by his honest admission that he was a Democrat and, presumably, a liberal. In the process of researching his background—small town origins (Albany, New York), prep school, Colgate University, etc.—I hit upon a rather revealing You Tube* which fleshed out a view of Ernest Hemingway within a myopic vision. Not that Hem’s reputation was universally acclaimed—witness the largely dim view of him by feminists because of his “Doll’s House” heroines.  more>>>

Ted Williams: Throw the Heat; Hold the Tortillas!
clear

by J.A. Marzán (November 2014)

 

Of Ted Williams, the last .400 hitter, there is no debate over his status among baseball gods and genuine American heroes. Still, in life he invited detractors by carrying the arrogance of the greatness he knew he had since he was a kid. A Youtube video describes him as “overrated,” its author not forgiving the two times that Williams spat at fans. This attitude problem put off the press so that when he had planned to retire, on the advice of a fan, he reconsidered and kept playing to pump up his numbers to surpass the impressive 500 home-run mark and thereby pressure those journalists not disposed to voting him into the Hall of Fame in the first round.  more>>>

We need American heroes today more than ever, yet the lack of any single name in Korea, Viet-Nam or Iraq to match those of Sergeant Alfred York and Audie Murphy is a telling indication of how those conflicts did not generate the need for the hero worship of the two world wars and portends the disinterest of the public on glorifying American combat heroism. Two classic American heroic films are “Sergeant York” and “To Hell and Back.”  more>>>

The Sincerely Held Religious Belief: Hobby Lobby and the Bible

1.

The Hobby Lobby decision, written by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Alito and passed by a 5-4 ruling in June, continues to reverberate in American culture like a car alarm that won’t shut off. As most everyone knows, the Court had to decide whether “three closely held corporations [which] provide health-insurance coverage for methods of contraception . . . violate the sincerely held religious belief [italics added] of the companies’ owners.”  more>>>

Shakespeare and the Clash of Civilizations: ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ Reconsidered

Is there such a thing as the clash of civilizations? If there is, what is its likely outcome – civilizational collapse or renewal? Is conflict inevitable? Shakespeare’s great play, Antony and Cleopatra, confirms our suspicions. There is indeed such a clash, and played out for the highest stakes – nothing less than hegemony, visible or invisible, of the entire world.  more>>>

Don’t Kiss the Messenger: Wooing by Proxy in Shakespeare

by David P. Gontar (October 2014)


“I can live no longer by thinking.” - Orlando

It is a commonplace that love is a paradox. Drawing us together, it is yet a third element beyond its terms, that is, an intrusion. It is in virtue of this ambiguity that it is rarely the solution we would have so much as the challenge to which we must rise. (Bradley, 21) Imperceptibly, our amorous dealings become relationships, things to which we ourselves stand in subsidiary attitudes often at odds with one another.  more>>>

Unexplored Nepal
clear

by Geoffrey Clarfield (November 2014)


The Remote West

Until the early 1950s Nepal was a closed Himalayan Hindu Kingdom ruled by a hereditary monarch, whose subjects believed he was a God. When the Chinese occupied Tibet in 1959 and once again sealed this former Buddhist kingdom off from the rest of the world, Nepal began to open its borders to visitors. Of a sudden the West saw Nepal as a buffer zone against the Chinese communist north and began to engage it at a number of levels.  more>>>

Hudnas

by Isaac Yetiv (November 2014)


Shortly after Arafat signed the Oslo agreement (Sept.1993) he visited the Arab community in Capetown, South Africa. There, he was assailed by the ultras who accused him of selling out by recognizing the "Zionist entity" and abandoning the holy war against the Jews. But he calmly explained that he had acted like the prophet himself who signed the peace agreement of Hudaybieh with his enemies when he was weak militarily and then attacked them two years later and destroyed them and their Arabian tribes. "Am I, God forbid, better than the Prophet?" he concluded rhetorically, to the applause of his audience.  more>>>

Lone Wolf Jihadis on Both Sides of Our Northern Border

The final weeks of October 2014 were devastating for America. We had lone wolf jihadis in Ottawa and Montreal killing and wounding Canada Forces service personnel. In New York we had a Muslim convert and former US Navy serviceman shot dead in the midst of a deadly hatchet attack on two NYPD officers in Queens. All three appeared to be operating below the radar screen of surveillance inspired by Islamic State jihadist social media imploring Salafist brethren in the West to mount attacks on uniformed military and law enforcement officers.  more>>>

ISIS is Islam!
clear

by G. Murphy Donovan (November 2014)


Barack Hussein Obama is given to making extraordinary pronouncements. Many of the more dramatic assertions are seldom based on facts, reason, or reflection. Put aside, if you can, the domestic hyperbole which often accompanies wishful thinking about social problems; poverty, public education, and public health. The President’s public rhetoric on foreign policy, questions of national security, is unique, bordering on the delusional. To paraphrase Jack Kennedy; getting it wrong at home might be tragic, but getting it wrong abroad could be fatal.  more>>>

Driven Mad
clear

by Theodore Dalrymple (November 2014)


The motor car, a friend of mine once said, is the most liberating of all machines ever invented. Suffice it to say that I have not found it so, at least not in Europe, which is small and overcrowded and full of traffic jams. Once, for example, when I was going to visit my aunt, it took me two hours to go a hundred yards along the North End Road in London. I did not find it a liberating experience, unless the bringing to the surface of the inner demon that caused me to bang my fists on the windows in sheer frustration be counted as a liberating experience (for the inner demon, that is, not for me). I didn’t know either that I had it in me to scream so loud.  more>>>

(This essay is a revised version of chapter 16 of the second edition of Richard L. Rubenstein's, After Auschwitz: History, Theology and Contemporary Judaism (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1992.)

Nor were the inscribers famous persons, nor even identifiable. They were, rather, Everyman.  more>>>

Police 'put cap on arrests' in Rochdale sex abuse inquiry: Social worker whistleblower says dozens of offenders are still on streets
clear

From the Daily Mail

Veteran social worker Sara Rowbotham, who was responsible for gathering the main evidence in the 2012 Rochdale child sex abuse case, said that as a result dozens of sex offenders were still walking the streets preying on children.She said because police bosses became obsessed with convicting just nine perpetrators they left dozens free to continue raping and abusing young girls. 

‘It’s very shocking but there are dozens of child sex offenders still on the streets because they put a cap on the number of people they would arrest,’ she said. ‘In the end this was just a tiny proportion of the number of offenders raping and abusing children and they were allowed to escape. But not only did they cap the number of offenders but they also put a ceiling on the number of victims they would interview and proceed with.’ 

Her explosive comments will stun Greater Manchester Police whose Police and Crime Commissioner yesterday launched a report highlighting the massive problem of child sexual exploitation.Commissioner Tony Lloyd has vowed to go back and review cases where victims have made sex abuse allegations.But Miss Rowbotham, a social worker in Rochdale for more than 13 years, said the police were still doing far too little to combat on-street grooming.

She said: ‘It’s still going on. The same perpetrators are still out there because police put a ceiling on the number of arrests. The actual number of suspects is huge but the number of victims is equally large. They are still having to deal with the trauma of that on a day-to-day basis knowing no-one has ever been brought to justice for abusing them. . . The victims deserve their evidence to be taken seriously. I referred dozens of cases to the police that I know were never acted upon.’

Miss Rowbotham, who fought for a Serious Case Review and was commended for her work by the Home Affairs Select Committee, was made redundant in February.

It's almost a blessing to be released from these organisations - one can then speak freely, no longer having to worry about the bread and butter.

Isil jihadists 'offered teenager $25,000 to carry out bombings in Vienna'
clear

From the Telegraph and the Austrian edition of The Local

A 14-year-old boy suspected of planning a series of bombings in Vienna was reported on Thursday to have been offered $25,000 (£16,000) by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) to carry out the attacks amid claims that two other youths recruited in the same way remain at large.

The arrested youth has not been named by authorities, but has been identified by the Austrian media as Mertkan G, the son of Turkish immigrants, who has lived in the country for eight years. He was arrested on Tuesday but details are only now emerging about his case.

Among the sites in which he has admitted planning to plant explosives is Vienna's Westbahnhof station, one of the busiest in the country, used by 40,000 travellers each day.

Austrian officials have refused to comment on reports that he was recruited over the internet by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and promised a payment for carrying out the bombings. But a spokesman for prosecutors said that the 14-year-old was in touch with "various different contacts".

Despite his youth, he reportedly reconnoitred potential target sites "like a professional". He is not believed to have built any bombs by the time of his arrest, but he had researched bomb-making extensively on the internet, and made specific inquiries about purchasing certain parts.

The Austrian authorities have spoken only of "unconventional explosive devices", but, according to local media reports, he was planning to build improvised cluster bombs similar to those used in the 2013 Boston marathon bombings.

It appears he was not planning a suicide attack: he has reportedly confessed that he wanted to travel to Syria to fight alongside jihadist groups there, and saw a successful bombing campaign as his ticket to join. 

A report in Kronen Zeitung newspaper claimed that he was actively recruited over the internet by Isil and promised a "special position" as a reward for carrying out the bombings, as well as the payment of $25,000. The newspaper claimed that two other youths were recruited to carry out attacks in similar fashion and remained at large. 

Justice officials have two days to decide whether to extend the boy's detention by a further two weeks, to allow additional investigations.  In Austria, young people are considered criminally culpable from the age of 14.

Police in St. Pölten revealed that they had been investigating the boy since the beginning of October, since he had been making extremist statements and engaging in increasingly radicalized behaviours.  On Wednesday afternoon, the regional court in St. Pölten accepted a request by the prosecutor for the imposition of pre-trial detention.

With Its Day Of Rage, Fatah Makes Ever Clearer That It Is Not A National Fight, But A Jihad
clear

Here.

On Friday, of course, the propaganda Jihad is to take place -- innocent Arabs ("Palestinians") who want only to pray at Al Aqsa and nothing more (nothing more except to keep Jews from ever praying on Temple Mount, and who also want to continue to ban Christian symbols too, from being worn there) -- will gather, throw rocks and Molotov cocktails, all in order to further the Jihad against the Infidel nation0-state of Israel.

That Jihad is not different from any of the Jihad acts committed against non-Muslims elsewhere, in New York City and Washington, at Fort Hood and Boston, in Madrid and Paris, in Amsterdam and London, in Moscow and Beijing, in southern Thailand and northern Myanmar, in the southern Philippines and iin Bali, iin many thousands of Jihad attacks  of which you probably have not read or heard about even one percent.
 

That understanding of what prompts those, such as Mahmoud Abbas or Khaled Meshaal, those who make war on Israel, needs to be promoted. "After we conquer Jerusalem we will conquer Rome" said one of the Al-Nusra Front captors to his captive Theo Padnos, as noted in the latter's detailed narrative of his captivity. It isn't hard for anyone who spends a few days studying Islam to grasp this. Why is it so hard for our leaders, all over the West? Or do they not want to understand that, because the implications are too upsetting? ,

The Danger of Islamist Terrorists in Libya
clear

Libya, with its oil wealth and natural resources, could be an affluent and successful country. Instead, it is today a dangerous place and a chaotic society with continual fighting among Islamist terrorists, Arab nationalists, and a host of regional militias. The Obama administration and all democratic governments are now confronted by an increasingly troublesome issue, the growing influence of Islamist terrorism in Libya, Nigeria, and other countries in North Africa.

The terrorist groups, individually and in alliance, have taken advantage of the vacuum of central power and the mixture of rival tribal and regional groups and feuding political organizations in Libya. They control many of the large cities and much of the territory of the country, and are challenging the oilfields. Their tactics and ideology follow those of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, to which many claim allegiance.

It is commendable that the U.S. House Select Committee on Benghazi is planning as George Orwell once wrote to report on true facts and “not to feel obligated to fabricate imaginary facts and feelings.” At last, we will have the final definitive account of what happened before, during, and after the two attacks on September 11, 2012 by Islamist terrorists. The first on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, and the second, a few hours later, on another compound killed two American CIA contractors and injured ten others.

The forthcoming report will remind the country that the attacks were carried out by organized terrorist groups, and not the result of supposed mass outrage over a video that inflamed passions, as members of the Obama administration suggested. We already know that Ahmed Abu Khattala, the alleged ringleader of the main terrorist group, Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, is being held in the U.S. on an 18-count indictment and multiple charges of murder. The group led the attack with assault rifles, grenades, and other weapons, and plundered sensitive U.S. information.

The Congressional inquiry should lead to further understanding of the dramatic increase of Islamist terrorism in North Africa. This is now a threat not only to neighboring countries in Africa but also to the whole world. Since the popular Libyan uprising in 2011, that followed the April Spring uprisings in Tunis and Egypt in February 2011, and the capture and death in October 2011 of the eccentric dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi who had ruled Libya for 42 years, the country has been in chaos. Gaddafi’s bizarre political system, named in 1977 “Jamahiriya” or “state of the masses”, and run through “revolutionary committees”, was transformed into a republic that did not bring stability and security.

Today, that republic contains not only countless Islamist militia groups but also different political authorities, two governments and two parliaments, the General National Congress and a national parliament. The GNC, that has chosen Omar al-Hasi as prime minister, is dominated by Islamists who belong to a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Libyan party.

The official parliament composed of liberals and federalists, and the elected government and the Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni, recognized internationally, has been forced to move to Bayda in east Libya. The commander of the Libyan army, General Khalifa Haftar, is conducting a campaign against Islamists. To counter their forces, General Haftar started “Operation Dignity,” an air and ground assault against the terrorist groups in Benghazi.  It attacked Islamist bases held by Ansar al-Sharia, the Raf Allah al-Sahati Brigade, and the 17February Martyrs Brigade. 

Opposed to the formal government are more than a few feuding Islamist groups and jihadists. The Libyan government does not control Tripoli, the capital. The Islamist group Dawn of Libya now controls the vital institutions there. In August 2014, the group seized the American Embassy in Tripoli from Zintan, a rival group, and now guards it. It has at least eight other militia groups associated with it.

The jihadists, a number of groups consisting of supporters of the Islamic State, control the area around the city of Derna. Those groups include Ansar al-Sharia, designated in January 2014 as a terrorist organization by the U.S., the Abu Salim Martyrs Brigade, and the Sahara Brigade. They have declared allegiance to the Caliphate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. 

The situation is confusing because the name Ansar al-Sharia refers not to one specific group but to several Islamist and Salafist groups in East Libya. To clarify, the main group Ansar al-Sharia in Libya (ASL) is primarily associated with two others, Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi (the one that attacked the American compounds in September 2012) and Ansar al-Sharia in Derna. ASL controls state and military bodies in Benghazi and public service facilities. It has large quantities of weapons, including SA-6 surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft guns, rocket-propelled grenades, and armored vehicles.

Conflict rages in Benghazi, Libya’s second largest city, between government forces and terrorists. The city has undergone great violence, assassinations, bombings, and kidnapping. In the fighting, the terrorists destroyed part of Benghazi University. They bombed the area around Benghazi’s airport, killing 40 soldiers. The leader of the Ansar branch in Benghazi terrorists, Mohammed al-Zahawi, has made the demands of the group clear. The group, Ansar al-Sharia (Partisans of Islamic Law), will not disarm until a state based on sharia is created. It started in Benghazi and, in the context of political chaos, built communal ties with groups in other areas, and changed its name, claiming to be a national movement.

The problem is becoming urgent because it is spreading. This oil-rich country is becoming a terrorist haven. Terrorists who attacked Egyptians in South Sinai killing 30 soldiers in a suicide bombing were trained in East Libya. One estimate is that 3000 Egyptian terrorists have been trained in Libya. Even more disturbing is that a Libyan terrorist group called Masked Men Brigade that is linked to ASL and to al-Qaeda, in October 2014 captured eleven commercial jetliners that may well be used for terrorist attacks on a Maghreb state in North Africa.

The international community has become aware of the danger. On August 27, 2014 the UN Security Council passed Resolution 2174 (2014) that expressed concern at the growing presence of al-Qaeda-linked terrorist groups and individuals operating in Libya. But it was French President François Hollande who, the next day, called for “exceptional support” to restore order. The American administration is conscious of the danger of the Islamist terrorists to world peace but should be more active in participating in the effort to assist the legitimate Libyan government to overcome the Islamist threat.
