The canary's gasping 

The Random Penseur links to this article by Michael Totten at TCS, who tells us that "Palestinian nationalism is the hot new cause for the cool kids." RP reminds us:
You may ask yourself, why should I care about this? You may think, I'm neither Jewish nor Israeli and it's a world away. Someone much more clever than I once said that the Jews are like the canary in the coal mine for the world. When the atmosphere turns poisonous for the Jews, it's only a matter of time for everyone else.
John Ray has similar thoughts.
