Book Review

The pathetic Israel-Firster Nick Cohen has written a book reviewed by Michael Fitzpatrick in the current issue of Slate magazine.

Fitzpatrick makes several good points, among them the way that Cohen (and others including Bush and Blair) always compare their current enemy to Adolf Hitler:

"...whereas Hitler came to power at the head of a popular mass movement and ruled one of the world’s most dynamic capitalist powers, his supposed successors presided over ruined and marginal economies, with feeble state apparatuses, negligible military capacities and demoralised societies. "

Presumably this weird habit comes from ignorance - anyone who's glanced at the German order of battle for operation Barbarossa in 1941 will see that comparisons with an amateur living in a cave are an insult.
