Buy this book immediately!

I strongly urge everybody to go buy David Solway's new book, "The Big Lie: On Terrorism, Antisemitism, and Identity.

Solway is yet another intellectual who has come to grips with the realities of the world after 9/11. Prior to that tragedy, he was a very typical anti-American Canadian who bought into Noam Chomsky and other left-wing writers. But 9/11 changed all that and he has written a masterpiece. Because Solway was a poet, his use of words is amazing - this is not just a terrific book...but a book that showcases terrific writing. Here's just one small quote:
It is curious to observe that the religious Islamic right and the secular Western left have joined forces in creating a post-Orwellian form of doublespeak -- peace (surrender), resistance (terrorism), apartheid (self-defence), freedom of religion (Islamic privilege), anti-Zionism (antisemitism), international community (competitive dissensus), diplomacy (appeasement), justice (prejudice) -- phrases used like flags of convenience under which to float an ideological agenda and to avoid the high cost of truth."
"The Big Lie" is available at Chapters, and I urge to run, not walk, and buy this book.
