“The Passion” – A Review for Jews

I went to see “The Passion” tonight, and I would like point out a few things to those of you considering seeing it. First, on an entertainment level, it isn’t much of a movie in the traditional sense, so if you’re looking for entertainment skip it, this movie is downright painful for anyone not looking for an affirmation of their ...

Civilization and its Enemies

I recommended Lee Harris’ new book Civilization and it’s Enemies a couple of weeks ago I didn’t really have the time to give it a full review then, and I was sure if I waited long enough someone would do the job for me. David Warren : Mr. Harris whose essay on “Al Qaeda’s Fantasy Ideology“, two summers ago, gave ... Read More »

‘The Reigning Philosopher of 9/11′

In August of 2002 Lee Harris wrote an essay, Al Qaeda’s Fantasy Ideology, that was the most astonishing thing I had read about 9/11 (and I’ve been unable to shut up about it since then).

Doubts About an Ally

Bernard-Henri Levy writes of his doubts about our “ally” Pakistan. Levy is a fascinating character, a French celebrity/intellectual who is a self described Anti-Anti-American (yep, they do have a few of those over there), and recent author of Who Killed Daniel Pearl? which outlines his theory that Pearl was killed because he knew too much about the Pakistani government’s Islamist ...

Positively Fifth Street: Murderers, Cheetahs, and Binion’s World Series of Poker

I’ve been playing poker in some form for a few years now, mostly in small weekly games with friends. Late-night surfing got me a little hooked on the Travel Channel’s World Poker Tour and I’ve watched the ESPN’s coverage of the World Series of poker this year with a rabid fascination, but nothing got my juices flowing like James McManus’s ...
