  1. Does anyone else remember Al Gore slagging this miserable tyrant four or five years ago at a trade meeting?

  2. I wasn’t aware that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion had been translated into the Malaysian language.

  3. Hey, as long as Chirac refuses to take an official stand, is it our place, as a nation, to get involved in any denunciation?

    (See,4386,215251,00.html for a bizarre headline.)

  4. I never heard of any of these people.

    I do know that Radio Japan always takes the anti-Israel side, so maybe it’s an Asian thing. They’re not Muslim. What does China do? It might be some kind of WWII thing in Japan, serving to prevent remembering something.

  5. Look, I had a hard day at work today. What the hell does this story have to do with Tarantino? I didn’t see him mentioned anywhere in the article.

  6. It’s actually a hilarious comment — a remark on the Gregg Easterbrook blog controversy about his post on Jews and violence in Hollywood, which I believe is linked/commented on further below, in this blog.

  7. Was it Malaysia or Indonesia that banned “Schindler’s List” for allegedly spreading hatred against a people (Germans), even though the hero of the film was a German who saved a lot of Jews?

  8. Didn’t Zoolander kill the claymation dude a few years back?

  9. I suppose the best thing you can say about this guy is that he’s old enough that he’ll probably be dead soon. May he take Arafat with him.

  10. Reason really doesn’t like Easterbrook, does it? By the way, despite a grovelling apology, Gregg got fired by ESPN.

  11. …Which is owned by Disney, who’s execs he demonized. Not too smart…

  12. Easterbrook’s firing gets me riled because I live for TMQ in the fall. I hope someone picks it up by… tomorrow.

    Maybe he should go on slate for the rest of the season and then shop it around.

  13. Oh no, the Muslim PM of Malaysia has a moral bone to pick with the Christians and Jews. Boo hoo.

    At the end of the day this argument boils down to

    “God gave us Jerusalem”

    “No, God gave us Jerusalem”

    “No! God gave us Jerusalem”

    etc. etc.

    It’s sad, really, that they have to attack the meaningless slag from the cultures of their enemies rather than the actual problem: the myths to which they cling are wholly incompatable.
