I'm off to military reserves (again) today and tomorrow, so I've pre-blogged a few articles which should show up during the day.
In the meantime, mandatory reading is as follows:
- The Barbaric Arab Blood Lust is NOT based on Jews living in settlements. Rather, its based on Jews living in Israel. Read Sarah Honig's excellent historical analysis.
- Why Moderate Arabs are horrified by the policies of the current US Administration, by the always excellent, Professor Barry Rubin.
Round up of a few events of the past 24 hours:
