Toronto Star: Your Daily Dose of Twisted Moral Equivalence

Toronto Star: Your Daily Dose of Twisted Moral Equivalence

I can agree to disagree on the need for a UN probe of Israeli, US and UK drone strikes. But this Toronto Star staff-ed’s lede is really warped. How would Americans feel if another country launched a drone strike in the streets of New York City to kill an enemy? It’s a far-fetched notion, to be


Religious Trash Talk: Mitigating Palestinian Incitement?
