And for the ethically challenged who live among us, a reminder of what actual repression and actual torture are can be seen on video available at The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. Not for the faint of heart.
Occasional forays to MEMRI.org can also help remind people what’s really going on in the world, too–for instance, if you ever have the thought that the terrorist organization Hamas might be moderated by participating in elections in the Palestinian territories (see moronic reports here and here). Um, yeah, just like the Nazi Party was moderated by participating in elections in Weimar Germany back in the 1930s. What part of “anti-Semites are dangerous” don’t people get?
