As I have told you, the efforts of some left-wing academics to demonize Israel never ends. While you go about your business and pay attention to world events, they work tirelessly to ostracize Israel while ignoring both Israel’s security situation and the decades-long effort to destroy Israel. Groups like those who sponsor the Pinkwashing…

The use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime was supposed to be a red line. Two days ago, when Israel suggested chemical weapons had been used, it was dismissed as Israel trying to maneuver U.S. policy. The U.S. now has evidence that such weapons were used, and that the Assad regime was…

As Professor Jacobson has noted, there’s no shortage of denial about Tsarnaev Brothers, the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing. Barry Rubin observes: Now that the two (primary, at least) terrorists from the Boston Marathon attack have been killed or captured, we enter a new phase in which the dominant politically correct, factually…

Neiwert responds with Right-Wingers Use Boston Bombing to Paper Over Their Own Extremist Terror. I’ll deal with the breadth of Neiwert’s post…

I’m trying to document the various excuses explanations being cast about by the media in an attempt to deflect attention from the obvious cause of the Boston Marathon bombing.
