OVER A YEAR AGO, I called stuff like this “pure political poison” in terms of our relations with the Muslim world. It still is.
UPDATE: A lot of readers disagree with me here, pointing out that Nazism has a lot of adherents in the Arab world, etc., etc. That’s certainly true, but I don’t think it really addresses the point. Justin Katz writes that efforts to compare this with A.N.S.W.E.R. suggest “desperation” on the part of liberals. Well, that’s right. For it to compare with A.N.S.W.E.R., it would have to be a pro-Nazi sticker, sold by organizers who proudly shared its sentiments.
