  1. RE: “here’s Tobin completely missing the point: Julien Bousac has created a vision of a Palestinian state on the West Bank in which the Jews are literally under water.”

    MY COMMENT: “Commentary” magazine reminds me of the Heaven’s Gate cult. It invariably defies logic. Don’t the settlers always take the hilltops whereas the Palestinian villages are in the valleys? If one was obtuse enough to take the concept literally, wouldn’t the Palestinians be the ones under water? Oh, never mind. “Forget it Jake. It’s Chinatown.”

  2. Thinking further about Mr. Tobin’s remarks, it occurs to me that General Tommy Franks might have been wrong about Doug Feith!

    1. I think there are a number of people deserving of the “General Tommy Franks award.” Tobin is only one of them.

  3. Oops. The preceding post belonged in an earlier thread–I had given Julie the impression that I had written for the NYT Book Review. I’ll copy it here and post it there.

  4. Maps can be very useful things, especially when you’re lost. And when the human race gets lost in this big wide world, as it so often does, its map reading skills frequently leave much to be desired; it has to grope almost blindly back towards whatever path is deemed to be the right one. Needless to say, this is nearly always a painful process with many a fruitless detour along the way.

    Adherence by us all to a single common map, one more germane* to the matter under discussion, might make for a quicker and easier transit from ‘here’ to ‘there.’ But such a map must be adaptive, capable of charting a course ever onward and around whatever checks and difficulties can be expected on the journey.

  5. For him, the map represents Jews being thrown into the sea.

    Pathos or bathos?

    The settlement sea, one that Israeli’s were not “thrown” into, does represent a drowning.
