I have so much to tell, but little time to blog it. When I am back in the batcave, I will download all. Victor Davis Hanson's remarks earlier today were jawdropping, I will try to transcribe them on my return flight. After lunch I had the distinct pleasure to spend some time with one of the great cultural warriors of our time, Pierre Rehov.
For Pierre Rehov, life only took on true meaning when he began putting it at risk. He had been a movie producer, a novelist, a journalist and a lawyer. But none of those professions satisfied his searching soul. In moments of deep personal introspection he questioned himself, “Who and what am I really?” For him, the answer came when he turned on the news on October 6, 2000, and saw the images of the shooting of Mohammed al-Dura, the 12 year-old Palestinian boy, whom Israel was summarily accused of targeting. “Iwas in shock,” says Rehov, who rarely watches the pro-Arab French broadcasts. “In this case, I knew as a producer that there was something very fishy about the images. The angles just weren’t right.”(more here)
Historical accuracy. That's what it's all about.
