Love death. This is the improbable instruction that the founder of an Egyptian sect called the Muslim Brotherhood imparted to his followers in the 1920s. A disciple named Mohammed Atta copied this instruction into his journal just before leading the attack on the World Trade Center three days before my biopsy. Was it a coincidence [...]

Now allow me to deal with some of the lies perpetrated by the Muslim Students Association and their “Israel Apartheid Week” on [the University of California, San Diego] campus. On the “apartheid” wall of hate funded by this university there is a map that pictures Israel, Gaza and the West Bank. It is [...]

After its defeat in Vietnam, the United States withdrew its military forces from the entire Indo-Chinese peninsula, something Chomsky along with the rest of the left had fiercely denied it would ever do. The result was that Cambodia was over-run by the Khmer Rouge—in other words, by the Communist forces that the Vietnamese Communists along [...]

In sum, [the] academic disinterest in my work is not a personal matter, but the expression of a political fact. It is a reflection of the ideological debasement of our institutions of knowledge by a movement whose hallmarks are narcissisitic self-absorption and intellectual intolerance, and whose attacks on tradition, objectivity and intellectual standards are already [...]

Like Islamic radicalism, the totalitarian doctrines of communism and fascism are fundamentalist creeds. “The fundamentalist does not believe [his] ideas have any limits or boundaries,… [therefore] the goals of fundamentalist terror are not to eliminate injustice but to eliminate opposition.”10 That is why the humanitarian nature of America’s mission to Mogadishu made no difference to [...]

In this life, they can haul you off without warning. You can step onto the wrong plane, or off the wrong curb, or into the wrong conversation and be gone. A microorganism can stumble into a passage to your heart and douse the lights before you even learn its name. Or the cells of your [...]

The founders were not radical democrats or socialists like Hertzberg, but conservatives who had a healthy distrust of political passions and who devised a complex system designed to frustrate the schemes of social redeemers and others convinced of their own invincible virtue. If it were not for the undemocratic power vested in the Supreme Court, [...]

In the end, a “millennium” is too big a concept for the imagination. A thousand years equals 30 generations, a duration that has no flesh and blood dimension. Half a millennium ago, Columbus had just landed in the Western hemisphere; half that again, America had not yet been born.
But a century has resonance for us, [...]

I arrived in Austin, Texas, one evening recently to give a speech about academic freedom at the university there. Entering the hall where I was to give my speech, I was greeted — if that’s the word — by a raucous protest organized by a professor and self-styled Bolshevik, Dana Cloud. Forty protesters hoisted placards [...]
