And Then There’s the Other Side of the Story…..

Victor Davis Hanson, Stanford professor and a man once referred to as the neoconservative “court historian”, has an interesting take on the recent events in the Gaza Strip.  I can’t help but enjoy his breathless contention that

“Again all very creepy — the stuff of Tolkien’s Mordor. It is now clear that the so-called and much praised ‘international community,’ the hallowed U.N., the revered EU, all pretty much are indifferent to the survival of a democratic Israel, or are actively supportive of its terrorist Hamas enemy. Only the U.S. (for now) stands by a constitutional state in its war against a murderous terrorist clique, with annhilation its aim and religous fascism its creed.”

Neoconservatives seem to think their mandated “moral clarity” on policy issues only applies to those they consider their enemies.  I have to agree with them that Israel has a right to defend itself, but when every issue is examined with the myopia of a Hanson then practically anything that can be considered “clarity.”
