And why aren't the networks constantly replaying the beheading on television? Are they afraid it might reinforce support for our war on Islamist jihad? Where is the URL to Al Qaeda's website? The Washington Post surely has it -- why not publish it?
Meanwhile, what is it with Islamists and the beheading of Jews? Oh yeah. The media didn't really emphasize that Nick Berg was Jewish. Perhaps they thought it might be relevant.
The Western left indulges in the fantasy that its opposition to Israel's right to exist is not anti-Semitism. Really? Then why do the leading anti-Semites in the world, the people who are better at anti-Semitism than anybody since Hitler and Himmler, believe that opposition to Israel justifies killing any Jew, anywhere, any time?
America has made a great many strategic and tactical mistakes since September 11. Let's not make the mistake of failing to listen to our enemy.
