All right, I know I said I had only two-cents to put on Anne Coulter's brawl, but I stumbled upon this comment from David Horowitz. It is the first time I read him, though I remember him being referred to as something horrible for some reason, maybe because he is an unapologetic Jew with a big mouth which some people find insufferable (Jews are supposed to be extra dainty and taciturn, especially when vilified, to set an example on how freedom of speech works) and some Jews find embarrassing (a phenomenon embarrassing in and of itself). So here is what he is saying, why he still finds the anorexic blond cool:
I have received a surprising number of emails from friends basically asking "What are you going to do about Coulter?" This is a reference to her recent comment that she is hoping for the perfection of the Jews. My response is this: what else would a Christian hope for? That's the message of the New Testament: Jesus came to fulfill, complete, perfect the Law. If you're a Christian, that's what you believe. If you don't accompany this belief by burning Jews who refuse to become perfected at the stake why would any Jew have a problem?
Which is exactly what I said, though less succinctly. How nice to be understood.
