by Hugh Fitzgerald Bella Hadid, the Palestinian-American model, a master of the catwalk’s mandatory swirl-and-twirl, gets an A for her chilly good looks, but I’m afraid that, not for the first time, she has flunked History.

by Phyllis Chesler At this moment in history, you’re lucky if you do not get shot down, knifed, or rammed with a truck, defamed, or fired as a function of your race, religion, national origin, or sexuality.
