A Bit More Detail

Assorted Personal Notations, Essays, and Other Jottings

[LINK] Four Livejournal Links

  • arpad links to an old Cold War-era pulp novel, The Texas-Israeli War of 1999. Yes, that’s the title.
  • srk1 introduces his unwary readers to a series of remarkable statements made by Martin Amis recently, regarding how everyone really is in a mood to go after Muslims. Did we think the 21st century would be free of pogroms?
  • optimussven introduces his readers to the fine nuances of Middle Eastern nouns and adjectives. Me, it’s the frequent failure to distinguish between “Arabian” and “Arab” that makes me despair.
  • nhw discusses flaws of Dawkins’ critique of religion. Can an argument that doesn’t engage with the mindset of an ideology’s proponents be valid?
