Exploding Israelis: An event in which readers may be interested (Thursday, noon to 1:30, in front of Collis):

All,

in response to the “Rally for the Human Rights of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories,” the Dartmouth CRs, the Review, and other interested students will be holding something along the lines of a “Rally for the Human Rights of Exploded Israelis.” It’s crude, yes, but it does get the point across.

So, if you believe in the Bush doctrine (no matter how tepid Colin Powell is about enforcing it) and you believe that the U.S. should stand with countries that support its key values of democracy, human rights, and the free market before it stands with countries or groups that explicitly reject those values and you believe that Israel has a right and obligation to defend its people from terrorist attack and you believe that terrorism is neither glamorous nor romantic and that people who wear Che Guevara silkscreened t-shirts are, at best, silly and ignorant, then you should join us for us much time as you can spare between noon and 1:30 on Thursday at the front of Collis.

—————–Forward this to email anyone you know who might be interested.———————–

We’re not organized, we don’t have a list of speakers (how we’re going to counter Mohamad Bydon and Hillary Miller I’ll never know), and we’re just doing the best that we can at the last minute. But we’re right. So come out for a half-hour or an hour and help us fight back against shoddy moral relativism, misinformation, and the naivety and plain stupidity of those would connect homicide bombings with a “Rally for Peace.” I will bring posterboard and markers for those who wish to create signs; other worthwhile props are U.S. flags, Israeli flags, Arafat effigies, etc.

And, if you made it this far: P.J. O’Rourke (being serious) about why the press (and others) are biased pro-Palestinian.

Thank you.
