So far, so good; I consider myself a member, hopefully in good standing, of the anti-totalitarian liberalism Levy wants to bring back to life. Yet something nonetheless troubles me about "Left in Dark Times." This does not involve what Levy has to say about genocide and ethnic cleansing; the world was too slow to respond to the barbarities in Bosnia and Rwanda, and too many innocent people died as a result. My problem lies with the way Levy explains the threat to liberty posed by terrorism, especially those forms inspired by radical Islam. Here he comes much too close to the kind of apologetics he all too rightly accuses the left of engaging in.
And WHAT of the GENOCIDE in PALESTINE, sir?!!!!!
It is frequently said that we ought to tolerate religious differences; whatever we might think of Islam, we should respect the rights of adherents to believe what they want.
Is that a RACIST STATEMENT or what?!?!
Can you imagine the reaction if he had written "whatever we may think of Judaism?"
No, Levy responds, what the Muslim world needs is not tolerance but secularism. It is not freedom of opinion that we ought to seek but freedom of thought. Only by applying to Islamic societies the same standards of free inquiry that we apply to our own do we treat Muslims as our equals.
Yeah, and they HATE THAT!!!!
They HATE US FORCING OUR VALUES on them -- just as YOU WOULD HATE THEM doing the same, American!!
I think the MASS-MURDER and TORTURE of their WOMEN, CHILDREN, and FAMILIES had something to do with it, too!!!!
If Muslims say that cartoons caricaturing their prophet are offensive and should not be published, we should ignore their calls for sympathy and in the name of freedom of thought be willing to stand charged with blasphemy.
The problem with this way of thinking is not just that secularism taken to such an extreme is itself illiberal; knowing what is right, it tramples on the sensitivities of others with little regard for how they may understand the world. A bigger issue lies elsewhere. Levy is convinced that one reason we do not respond forcefully to Islamofascism-- a term he is perfectly willing to use--is because the world is rife with anti-Semitism.
I'm fucking PUKING on this ZIONIST DIARRHEA DRIVEL!!!
No wonder I swear up a storm!!
Most people, even if not especially on the left, have always hated Jews, he insists, and see no reason to come to the defense of Israel in its own struggle against its terroristically inclined neighbors.
Awww, once again, the POOR, LYING, LAND-STEALING, MASS-MURDERING, NaZionist ASSHOLES in my Zionist-controlled, War Daily!!!!!!
Maybe I WON'T BUY TOMORROW, huh?
I have HAD IT WITH THE ZIONIST PROPAGANDA!!!!!!!
But Israel is not a secular society; it is a Jewish state.
Not for much longer, God willing!!!
And on that day, I WILL CHEER and CELEBRATE to the GATES of HEAVEN itself!!!!!
If we are to tell Muslims that they ought to open up their societies to outside influences, shouldn't we be putting pressure on Israel to reform its incredibly strict marriage laws? If we decline to stop the publication of cartoons offending Muslims, shouldn't we permit people to say anti-Semitic things?
How about getting them to STOP STEALING LAND and MURDERING PALESTINIANS?!
How about that?!!!!
Levy ends his book with a ringing call for universalism: "And why can't something that works in one place not work in another?" he plaintively asks. It is a good question. Answering it, alas, would require a liberalism willing to treat Israel the same way we treat every other country, something that Levy never does.
Well, that is ONE BOOK I WON'T BE PURCHASING!!!!
