"The Lowest of the Low"

I’ve been accused of having a monomaniacal obsession with New Republic editor in chief Martin Peretz which is comparable to Peretz’s own monomanias. Readers can make of that what they will. For my part, it just seems important that the words of the owner and editor of a major American political magazine achieve the wide distribution they deserve. In this offering, for example, Peretz explains that Palestinians, like Iraqis, are subhuman:

This is cold comfort to the Israelis. Their enemies can still maim and kill. It is entirely preferable for the Palestinians to have their rump and run it as they will or can. But, please, enough about how civilized they are. They are on their way to being Iraqis.

Taking the “neo” out of “neo-imperialist” mindset. How sweet it is.
