Ran into a snag with my podcast website, and am unusually busy of late. In the meantime, a pause that refreshes: Diana West's recent essay.
Her brief essay, glittering with verve like a searing sword, operates on two levels: it generally expresses her appropriately jaded, acerbic bird's eye view of the Problem of the Problem (i.e., the problem of the entire Western mainstream persisting in its myopia about the primary problem of Islam, with its head in the sand whilst standing lip-deep in the brown waters of De Nile; a feat of a mixed metaphor possible only for those who indulge in a mass neurosis and who thus sustain an incoherent paradigm). And it focuses on one glaring symptom of this mass neurosis -- the dismaying devolution of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
