Lebanon’s future

 YaLibnanTV (websites www.yalibnan.com/ and www.iloubnan.info/-English) has this disturbing bit: If you would like to know if you are Phoenician and interested in knowing your lineage, then please visit The Genographic Projects’ website to contribute DNA… As an American mongrel with mixtures of English, German, Irish, Cherokee, Pawnee, and God-only-knows what else, when I read/hear about …

A frenzy of flummery

 Dear editor, There is a frenzy of flummery about Islam in this newspaper, on radio and television, and even from pulpits across America.  I suspect most of it comes from people who never actually met a Muslim.  We Americans used to be a people who challenged ignorance and prejudice, but perhaps that noble sentiment died …

Abracadabra

 Thanks.  Very interesting.  Finally, a few Americans are starting to get a clue how dangerously wacky this premillennial stuff is.  Kinda funny when it’s a bunch of hillbillies playing with snakes.  Not so funny when it dictates foreign policy and kills hundreds of thousands and dispossesses millions more.

A grand idea?

 Friends, Several years ago, I dreamed up an idea to counter the misinformation routinely propagated about Arabs in general, and Muslims in particular.  Some of you asked about the state of the project last week at the DC reunion, and reiterated how badly it was needed.  Others asked my parents about it the week before …

For your consideration

 Good letter, but the worst of it is the massive loss of Iraqi life, the mass exodus of Iraq’s best-educated and experienced citizens, the unending lack of basic civil infrastructure throughout Iraq, and (worst of all for us Americans who don’t really care about anyone but lily-white Anglo-Christians) the establishment of a “terrorism incubator” that will hatch …
