  1. This guy Peretz seems to imply that the life of a Muslim is cheaper, because Muslims are more likely to kill. This sounds like flawed logic to me. From the statement that Muslims are more likely to kill, it does not follow that their life is cheaper.

    On the other hand, in many recent conflicts like in Afghanistan, Iraq en Gaza, Muslim life indeed appears a lot cheaper than the life of an American, British or Israeli soldier or civilian. The numbers of Muslims who are killed in these conflicts are hugely disproportionate to the casualties of the other side, which in fact proves that in the eyes of the Western and Israeli armies, Muslim lives are indeed very cheap.

    Furthermore, where does he get the notion that Muslims are more likely to kill? Intentional homicide rates in Muslim countries are among the lowest in the world and far lower than in the United States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate
    You’d think that a renowned editor and journalist like Mr. Peretz would at least rely on facts and not on some wild, unsubstantiated imaginations of his own.

    1. homicide rates in Muslim countries are among the lowest in the world and far lower than in the United States.

      In general I feel much safer in Muslim countries than I do in the United States, and I say this as a woman who prefers to travel on my own. I walk, take taxis, trains, buses, and other forms of public transportation by myself at all hours of the day or night on a regular basis, and do so not only without fear, but with confidence that if I need assistance or direction people will eagerly provide it.

      And you are absolutely correct in pointing out that it is not to Muslims that Muslim life is cheaper, but to western non-Muslims.

  2. Marty detests the peace process and not only doesn’t want it to work, doesn’t believe it will.

    Here Marty and I have something in common. I detest the so-called peace process because it is a sham and has been from the beginning; I don’t want it to work because it is intended as nothing but a “place holder” to allow Israel pursue its true goal of ethnically cleansing and swallowing up as much territory as possible; I don’t believe it will work as a process that leads to peace because it is not and has never been intended to lead to peace.

    1. Gotta agree with Sh irin on this one. The whole thing is one big fraud.

      Now, how can we get Alan Dershowitz to join Peretz in exile? The air here would be so much fresher.

  3. Just for the record, Peretz was an embarrassment and a source of disgust to senior management during Beinart’s tenure and Peretz’s blog began when he found that his hateful rants wouldn’t get approved and printed.
    He was encouraged to run his crap under his own name, not the mag’s.
