He hasn't done such for South Ossetia, why would anyone expect him to do that for the Ukraine? It has already been observed that Putin is busing protesters into the Ukraine from Rostov, so it's not ev more »

I'm not yet convinced I am seeing a pattern, such as we had in the 1970s and 1980s, but there is a clear, pernicious and malicious level of consistent, if random, acts of terror against Jews worldwide more »

He's just another troll, not worth the effort. more »

We also need strategists whose primary job is to think like a terrorist,to identify potential targets, potential means, potential unconventional weapons, and so on. It won't help simply to plan for th more »

I was being sarcastic, actually. Although there's a big tax write-off associated with owning a house, that means nothing if you want to be sufficiently mobile to pursue jobs where they are as opposed more »

We scientists aren't creating deadly viruses, but we are finding plenty of those in nature.

There is one; Stephen. It is recorded in Acts that he was stoned by a mob for professing faith in Christ's resurrection. I don't believe the term saint was used, though.

And may we never cease to strongly defend against those who would engage in such hate attacks.
Posted 04/14/2014 09:03:08 EDT
Yes it is. No group has borne the brunt of more hate-based terrorist attacks than Jewish persons worldwide. And it will never be OK by any standard.

Where is there a standard issue neuralizer when you need one?

This from someone who claims he gets his news from the supermarket tabloids. Seen Elvis lately?

More BS from the loyal National Enquirer reader.

And yet we are willing to chastise Brandeis for playing it safe.

I guess I'll have to wait for the next real estate crash before attempting to buy a house.

Let them make equivalent painful cuts to their pet programs, then I will take them seriously.

TheSystemWorked for 8675308, so to speak. Amazing how many users have the same syntax, same vocabulary range, and same obsession, isn't it?

That is way beyond bad taste Skippy. It is completely uncalled for to bring Jacoby's family into this.

Care to hazard a guess as to who that user shares a typist with? It won't take much work.

Excellent, Ozark. That's why I am unwilling to criticize Brandeis too harshly. I don't know if I would have that level of courage either.
Posted 04/13/2014 08:34:46 EDT
Thanks yoga. Sure, it would have been more courageous for Brandeis to have moved forward with the honorary degree, but we don't know why they backed down. Perhaps some of them received threats, or the more »

I wonder if the depths to which we have sunk would make even P. J. O'Rourke gasp.
Posted 04/12/2014 12:06:20 EDT
Brandeis isn't advocating for abuse of women, and they are protecting what they see as the best interests of the university, regardless of whether or not it is courageous. As a conservative, I value t more »

I share your skepticism of Jacoby's motives. I applaud his support of Ms. Ali, but his tone in this article is snarky and cynical.
Posted 04/11/2014 06:51:26 EDT
While I am wholly outraged at the abuse of women, children, etc. wherever it happens in the world, the matter of honorary degrees is private. Brandeis is a private university, so the resolution of the more »
