Next month, American Betrayal, now also known as Wielkie Klamstwa Ameryki, will be published in Poland by Witamy AMF Plus Group.

How do you say "three cheers" in Polish?

 

This week's syndicated column

It’s 9/11 the 13th, and these United States have never been closer to losing the last vestiges of their foundational identity.

Long ago, our first president, George Washington, prophetically warned against “attachments and entanglements in foreign affairs.” In the last century, such sentiments, tragically (as I increasingly believe), fell into disrepute. In our time, Washington’s 21st-century successors, George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama, have no such compunction. On the contrary, their response to the Islamic assault of 9/11 and the aftermath of continuing jihad have been to link the fortunes of this great nation with those of warring tribes and factions in the Islamic world. That’s about as attached and entangled in foreign affairs as it is possible to get.

For the past 13 years, it has been the flawed crux of U.S. foreign policy to micromanage...

In the "long war" over American BetrayalHistory News Network, whose stated mission includes featuring "up to a dozen fresh op-eds by prominent historians" each week, reposted many of the attacks on the book by P.H.'s Radosh and Black, for example, but nothing else. That is, the site reposted none of the many pieces written in praise and/or in defense of the book -- not even by Vladimir Bukovsky, whose work has appeared at HNN, nor by M.

Here is the column, "Countering `Extremism' Will Never Defeat Jihad" (which seems to be okay with our elites):

It's just seven minutes of airtime out of millions since 9/11, but a recent segment of "The Kelly File" on Fox News bears notice. It's as good an example as any of the state of paralysis that still afflicts the public square since jihad struck Manhattan and Washington, D.C., 13 years ago. We have mourned our dead, fought wars, rebuilt cities, but something still is missing. That something is informed talk...

Geert Wilders, in parliamentary debate today in the Netherlands:

Madam Speaker, actually I was expecting flowers from you. I am celebrating an anniversary these days. Exactly ten years and two days ago, I left a party whose name I cannot immediately remember. During these ten years and two days. I have been much criticized. Most importantly for always saying the same thing.

My critics are right. Indeed, my message had been the same during all these years. And today, I will repeat the same message about Islam again. For the umpteenth time. As I have been doing for ten years and two days. I have been vilified for my film Fitna. And not just vilified, but even prosecuted. Madam Speaker, while not so many years ago, everyone...
