The World According to Me, Monday Edition

Rather busy lately making holiday plans.

My plan is always modest: stay sane, have a bit of fun and try to ring in the New Year with as many brain cells as I had the previous year.

Anyway, here's a link dump of stuff that has caught my eye, for your reading pleasure/horror.

North America:

John Moskovitch: "One rabbi's story of change". This is a very interesting essay on his move from the left to the right. I thought it was particularly interesting how the liberal, reform Jewish community tried to silence him throughout his intellectual journey.

Ezra Levant: Trudeau is a "buffoon" and the stupidest leader in the world". True.

Sultan Knish: "Muslims don't like Muslims and really don't like Jews."

More Knish: "Being thankful for the Left" (really good).

Bret Stephens: "Fighting terror by self-reproach", in which Stephens coins the magnificent phrase "Obama's scolding homily" for the American people. That's just brilliant. Wish I had thought of that.


Demand for weapons skyrocketing. Gee, I wonder why?


Culture of Death, man with Down Syndrome given death sentence at public, NHS hospital. 


16 Israeli startups that are ready for take-off.
