I've been doing some reading this evening, so let me share with you.
Duncan Currie writes for The Weekly Standard that The Cartoon Wars Are Over, and the terrorists have won (veto power over American TV).
Hamas continues to pursue its hideous goal of eradicating Israel:
... and may be funded by the EU:
Chirac Seeks Fund to Pay Palestinians.
This makes Abu Mazen happy.
Meanwhile, Michael Totten's Middle East Journal tells us that Everything Could Explode at Any Moment (IDF Spokesman Zvika Golan told Totten that "Hezbollah is planning an operation").
A Jewish holy site - the tomb of R. Shimon ben Gamliel [beheaded by the Romans when they destroyed Jerusalem, razed the Temple and slaughtered the population] - has been desecrated (again) by Arabs... oh, pardon me, make that "unknown vandals." See Smooth Stone for more.
Last but not least, I found two great phrases at The Corner (NRO): Jonah Goldberg thinks Nancy Pelosi's expectation is "batty on its face." I love that. And Barbara Comstock coins a new name for the MSM, calling it the "Drive by Media."
Oh, and this line (Goldberg again) gets a lot of points:
Radical Islam is globalization for losers.
I'm glad someone thinks they're losers; they think they're winning.
