Saul(way) on the Road to Damascus

Also in the new Books in Canada is a lengthy and thoughtful review of David Solway's (pictured left in his pre-conversion hippy-dippy free-love days--is that a marijuana cigarette he's holding there?) The Big Lie: On Terror, Antisemitism, and Identity, by right-wing U of T Poli-Sci prof Clifford Orwin. Pretty telling, I think, that even a pro-American Zionist who believes Arabic Islam is a major threat to Western civ., writing in a magazine for which Solway is an editor, can find very little to recommend The Big Lie. Yet another reason not to read it, unless you're looking for a good laugh.
