Ever notice how some 'moderates' take their views to extremes?

The message in
Arafat's headdress

By Jeff Jacoby

The next time you see a picture of Yasser Arafat, take a look at his keffiyeh, the black-and-white headdress he never appears without.

Arafat's oddly-arranged keffiyeh is meant to resemble the map of "Palestine" -- the Arab state whose creation is his all-consuming goal. It is an emphatic symbol: Without uttering a word, Arafat conveys to everyone who sees him that Palestine is always on his mind.

But look again.

Mirrors of evil: Caution,
you are, what you read

By Larry Elder

News, like beauty, lies in the eye of the beholder -- the reporter. The clearest examples of this can be seen in the reporting of recent events in the Middle East.

Two Happenin' Hebes
By Julia Gorin

One is an actor who first caught my attention a few years ago when I started noticing a semi-Yiddishe punum insinuating itself into Hollywood movies like "Scream," "Hamlet" and "Kate & Leopold." It was conspicuously different from the usual young, overly photogenic fare, but not in the Adam Sandler/Jason Biggs mold, especially since it was sitting atop a six-foot-two body. I found out it belonged to a man named Liev Schreiber, and if it doesn't ring a bell, you're probably not female and Jewish.

The other one is a writer who just exploded onto the literary scene, with the release last month of his first novel, which sold to Houghton Mifflin for $500,000 and garnered him enough attention from the literary establishment to confirm his status at 25 as an official literary darling-slash-prodigy. This one, who is of standard Jewish size, started writing the book in college and finished soon after graduating. I could plotz.
