ARTICLE, MULTI-BLOGGED: This piece by Mark Steyn I read about on Joanne Jacobs' site, who got it from little green footballs. So it's been passed around a bit, but only because it's really good. Here's a disturbing tidbit:

President Bush and co. have been so busy enjoining us not to beat up our Islamic neighbours that they’ve failed to notice an actual as opposed to hypothetical spate of ‘hate crimes’: according to Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, more European synagogues have been attacked and burned in the last year than in any year since 1938, the year of Kristallnacht. This doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of press coverage.

What the hey? Anyway, Steyn's points are all about the role of cultural preferences in American and European foreign policies. AND that European criticisms of American resemble older European criticisms of Jews. How encouraging.
