Arafat and Advocates for Liberty

leave a comment »

Any libertarian, but particularly a Jewish one, should be troubled by this excerpt from Ron Grossman’s piece in the Chicago Tribune, R(e)volution, which compares Arafat to Thomas Paine.

As a person who also describes his theology as deist (which is extremely compatable with post-Holocaust Jewish perspectives), I find appalling the comparison of one of the foremost (non-Jewish) deists to this murderer. It is similar in impact to the oft heard references to Jews being Nazis.

Hat Tip: Honest Reporting.
