“Le retour de balancier autour d’une approche – sans émotion, ni exclusive – s’imposait. « Ne se serait-on pas fait manipuler par le 14 mars ? » s’interroge-t-on au Quai d’Orsay. Les dérives de l’entourage de l’héritier Saad Hariri pour soudoyer un faux témoin que la France récupéra complaisamment en 2005 risquent d’apparaître au grand […]

The Maronite church in Lebanon wants to make Patriarch Istifan Duwayhi a saint. To help out, As-Safir lists his miracles during his lifetime (well-over the needed three): He became blind in Rome so he prayed to Virgin Mary, and she cured him; he once stopped a fire in Majdal Al-Ma`ush; he froze a fig tree […]

The site printed a “correction”. This is the most disingenuous and dishonest correction to date. To say that her comment was “misinterpreted” when she actually said “whom the angry academic labels” is another lie to be added to the initial lie…It seems she needs not only lessons in common sense but in basic English too. […]

I am still waiting for a correction and retraction from this site which simply falsely and maliciously attributed to me something I never said–and would never say.

When Zionist hoodlums can’t find dirt on somebody, they just make them up. This writer on National Review website falsely claimed that I referred to Giuliani by an anti-Semitic slur. This is the post (from Harper’s) in question.

“In the initial IDF statement after the incident on Tuesday, the army said it “wishes to express sorrow” for the “use of children in terror attacks,” implying that the children had been sent by terrorists to collect the rocket launchers. The military has frequently accused terrorist organizations of using teenagers and children in this fashion. […]

“Tarcov had always found the link between Strauss and the neocons suspect, but now he had some hard and fast evidence to present to the world that what the neocons said they took from Strauss was not actually there to take.
